7 Things to Do This Weekend!

Not got any plans this weekend, but don't want to end up sitting at home the entire time? Here is a list of what's going on around Oman this weekend! 


Trek to Waken Village

When: Friday, 17th March - 4:30am

Where: Meeting in Al Khuwair

What: Waken Village made worldwide news during Ramadan last year after it was falsely reported that the small mountain village, 2,000 meters above sea level, gets only 3 and a half hours of sunlight a day, making the residents have the shortest fast time in the world! 

Even though the news was not true, Waken is still a tiny, beautiful village, and now you have the opportunity to trek to it! You will need to be prepared though, you must have a 4x4 to get up the mountains, before leaving the cars for the rest of the trek, lots and lots of water and snacks to keep you going throughout the day. 

If you’re interested in taking part, you need to confirm your attendance by this evening to Libin (93891525), Biju (97258819) or Krishnakumar (97100689) 

Muscat Scrabble Event

When: Friday, 17th March - 8:30am 

Where: Hotel Ruwi Muscat

What: Fancy yourself as quite the Scrabble expert? Spend the day challenging others to a word-off, the cost for taking part will set you back RO5, but this includes a full lunch and a fabulous wordy-weekend in return!
