Adventurers discover the uniqueness of Hallout village

The Wilayat of Sur holds many natural wonders, various tourist sites and a stunning mountain range around many residential villages. Each village is distinguished from the others by its location and natural components. Among these villages is the village of Hallout, which is located between the historical city of Qalhat and Tiwi. It is the highest mountainous village in Eastern Al Hajar mountains and the third highest peak in the Sultanate, as it is located at an altitude of more than 2000 metres above sea level, and it is about 50 km from the city of Sur.

Khamis al Muqaimi — a resident of the village said: It is possible to reach the village of Hallout from the city of Qalhat and it is the most accesible road now. The 35 km road requires using four-wheel drive cars as the road is not paved, rocky and passes through rugged mountain heights. The village is characterised by cold weather on summer days and, in winter, the temperature goes below zero. This distinction makes adventurers and tourists seek to discover the village and its tourist attractions.


Al Muqaimi explained that the inhabitants of the village of Hallout depend on raising and grazing cattle and sheep. It is their main source of livelihood. Many people choose to buy sheep and cattle from this area due to their quality. They also use sheepskins for many purposes as the main material of many industries.

Al Muqaimi added that there are also many trees in the village, including the thyme tree for which the village is famous, and it is one of the best types of thyme and is a source of livelihood for some people, in addition to a fig tree and the Sideroxylon tree.
