Oman Is Home to the World's Longest Zipline Over Water, Spanning Nearly 6,000 Feet

by Matador Creators Dec 8, 2023

No, the world’s longest zipline over water isn’t in Costa Rica, or any other tropical vacation destination that might immediately spring to mind. It’s actually in Oman, in the Musandam region, at the Oman Adventure Center Musandam. Developed by the OMRAN Group in collaboration with the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism, the Adventure Center is a full-fledged adrenaline-pumping entertainment venue. Not only is the place pretty epic in its own right, it also puts the Musandam Governorate area on the map as a prime adventure and leisure destination.

A key attraction here is, of course, the world’s longest zipline over water, which is now officially open and operates daily from 9 am to 4 pm, including holidays. This zipline spans over 5,905 feet, offering unparalleled views of Musandam’s mountains and sea. The cost for a single line is around $45 per person, while a double line costs about $62 for two people. The journey from the base to the top can take between 30 minutes to an hour, and is an absolute must for those looking for an unforgettable experience that combines excitement with stunning natural views.

What else to do in Musandam

In addition to the adventure center, visitors to Musandam can also embark on a traditional dhow boat and sail through the fjords. These cruises often include opportunities for dolphin watching, snorkeling, and swimming, providing a closer look at the region’s rich marine life. If you prefer more adrenaline-spiking activities, cliff jumping or canyoning in a Wadi can be an exhilarating experience.

Scuba diving and snorkeling are other popular activities in Musandam, offering a chance to explore the vibrant underwater world. Musandam has beautiful beaches where you can relax and soak up the sun — the golden beaches of Khasab are particularly popular among visitors — and for those interested in wildlife, interacting with friendly dolphins is also a must. For the truly intrepid, camping on Jebel Harim, the highest peak in Musandam, presents an opportunity to stargaze and wake up to a breathtaking sunrise.
