Musandam Peninsula

Last week’s “Where in the World” wasn’t identified until I gave a clue. It is the Musandam Peninsula in Oman, at the Strait of Hormuz, which is the narrow passageway between the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea. Here is a map of the area, from the 1:250,000 scale JOG NG 40-6, which I got from the University of Texas Map Library.

  1. I was in the Musandam peninsula in 2005 & 2006, Khasab is the capital city. What a nice place, the scenery, mountains. The Dhow cruise is great, it takes you threw the musandam, about 10 kilometers, you see the villages, where the Omani people live during the winter months, you can snorkle and see the beauty under water. They serve you lunch.
