PS133 A view of Al Nakhal's village near the foot of the mountain taken from
one of Nakhal Fort's towers.

Nakhal is in the Al Batinah region. It has a lot of "dates" trees as there is a hot spring near the foot of the mountain. Many tourists visit Nakhal on holidays to get a dip in the spring or just have a picnic near or along the shallow part of the wadi. A Fort is one famous monument in this place and it's open for tourists to visit as well. The Fort is constructed on top of a rocky hill and in some parts, the rock is part of the structure. Inside the Fort are historical documents and pieces that gives you an idea of Oman's past.
