A beautiful 500 years old mountainous village located 1,000 m above sea level ... I have visited Misfat Al Abriyeen many times in the past ,but in my last visit in December 2020 ,many thing has been changed, .. now there are coffee shops , Hotel ,museums and many other things. it has become quite an attractive tourist destination in recent years due to the many features that make it a wonderful experience for any visitor.... The old houses in Misfat al Abriyeen are traditional mud houses with palm frond roofs, and are unique in that they are built on solid rock foundations, surely as means of providing security during the olden times. Many villagers of Misfat Al Abriyeen rely on the agricultural terraces for their livelihood.. I recommend it, wear a comfortable shoes you will climb stairs and alot of stairs ..,and (wear a proper dress ,not short and sleeveless, respect the culture and religion..) The place is not to far from Al Hamra town ,and even a small car can reach

The authentic village is worth a trip. It is a bit cooler and the atmosphere is very relaxing. You have to park your car just outside the village and can nicely walk through the narrow alleys for an hour or os and watch the interesting irrigation system.

Walking through the village and the lush terraces below is one of highlights of our Oman tour. This village is one of the few to start developing a local tourism infrastructure with a couple of pretty inns and associated small scale tourism enterprises. As you approach the village there are a number of clear signs asking visitors to dress appropriately and specifically not to wear shorts. They point out that this is offensive to the residents of the village. This information was repeated in our hotel, on every door. All the women I saw were respecting this but a good proportion of the men were wearing shorts. Why? Can't they see that is grossly disrespectful to the people who are welcoming so warmly to their village. Can't they see that this will discourage other villages to going down a similar route of welcoming visitors. Are they totally blind to the Omani culture they've come so far to see.? Are white men so arrogant that they think these kinds of rules don't apply to them? (women are much more used to being told what to wear or not wear). These villages are semi-private spaces for the people who live there. Imagine a small community in your own country hosting throngs of visitors marching down your high street in tiny thongs. How would that make you feel? Would you feel your community was threatened. Would you want to interract with those people? Would you want your children to see that? Male visitors please do think. This is a request directly from the community. They are much too polite to let you know how insulting it is for you to ignore it. If we want to build understanding between people, we all need to be a bit more sensitive

The village is on the road from Al Hamra. Ample parking is available as you approach the village. There is also a public toilet as you walk in. The village itself is a meandering warren of twisting passages on many levels. There is also a seperate walk available through the falaj at the base of the village, sadly we had to skip this because of inclement weather.
