This new initiative is sure to draw adventurers from all around the world. A few days ago, the enormous project in Musandam Governate's Khasab Vilayat received its formal opening. The Oman Tourism Development Group (OMRAN) oversees its management and has ensured that it meets internationally safety standards and precautions. The 1800-meter zip line travels from Jabal Fit to an area built close to the Athana Khasab hotel. The zipline begins to descend towards the Wilayat of Khasab's coast as it travels from Jebel Fitt across the Wilayat's coast.
Visitors could ride the zipline every day from 9 am to 4 pm. It's noteworthy that Khasab now offers the tallest zipline in Oman. It is set up at a height of 220 metres.
All safety measures have been put in place here in compliance with international norms. The sophisticated braking system is one of the more important safety features. For the riders, there are also jackets and helmets.

It will let riders to take in the vistas of crystal-clear waters and mountain peaks in both the Khor Qadi region and the Mokhi region. It is the first activity to open at Oman Adventures Centre and is recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest zip wire over water.

One ride can be reserved for 18 OMR, or two rides can be reserved for 25 OMR. During the inaugural celebration of the adventure centre, guests could participate for a little time for just 10 OMR. You can also reserve a viewing ticket if you want to accompany riders to the flying platform or check out the sights from the Adventure Centre. There is no zipline ride included in this rate of 6 OMR.

Ras Al Khaimah, which is an hour away from Khasab, boasts of having the longest zipline in the world. Participants travel over 2.83 kilometres in three minutes at speeds of up to 160 kph on the Jebel Jais Flyer.

Citizens of 103 countries and those who are residents of the GCC are eligible for a visa on arrival in Khasab, which is conveniently accessible for all.
