Round Peg....in a square hole. That describes me! All my life I have never quite fit in ... now I have just given up trying to live up to the expectations of the square hole or trying to find a round one!

Caution – Drowning popular!

Actual notice board at Dayqah Valley near Mazaree!

This is a beautiful place about 125 kms from Muscat. A great drive with bends that are almost hairpin (queer turn of phrase?!). Reminiscent of Nandi Hills (near Bangalore) but then Nandi Hills is much steeper and much greener.

For the nicest places, drive on at least 2-3 kms beyond the notice board after crossing the ‘falaj’ (canal) on a concrete slab. Best to use a 4WD.

Up ahead are some really scenic places to picnic or camp. There are a couple of coves in the valley which make for shade and for most part the stream is very tame, at places its just knee deep.

The ‘mountains’ around make for some trekking and wild life appears in the form or goats and donkeys.

Well worth a visit.
