Ibra

Situation: It’s located about 180 km from Muscat and 160 km south. We arrived at the capital of the Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate North on Highway 23 that runs along the southern slopes of the Oriental Hajar mountain range.

Approaching town hall, a friendly city official offers you coffee and then turns into an improvised tourist guide to show us through the center of the city.
