The landscape of the Sultanate of Oman is very varied; the northernmost part of the country is the Musandam Peninsula, extending into the strait of Hormuz. Northern Oman is surrounded by the rugged Hajar mountains, the central part of the country is part of the large central Arabian desert, known as the R’ub al Khali, the Empty Quarter. It covers a quarter of the Arabian peninsula and is, for the most part, a barren wasteland. In this region between the Hajar mountains of the north and southern Oman, a flat gravel plain extends on 800 kilometers. In the south of Oman, the region of Dhofar is the dry plain of the Nejd, an escarpmentrises up to form the plateau surrounding Salalah on the coast. This limestone massif gives way to a fertile plain with sandy beaches.
