How to get to Sandpit#15

Sandpit#15 is only a few days away.

The two villas at Hatta Fort Hotel are booked and there’s plenty of space to crash on the floor in the aircon if you’re happy to pitch in for the cost of renting the villas. It should be under Dh200/person. You can also get a room at the hotel for about Dh900 a room.

You have to drive through Oman to get to Hatta Fort and to get to the pools. You’ll need your passport of Emirates ID.

How to get there: 

hatta fort big hatta fort small


Once you’re there:

We’ll probably have lunch at the villas beforehand. We will LEAVE the hotel at 4.00pm to go to the pools. You’ll need a sense of adventure and a sense of humour. There are options to do the upper gorge (which is pretty easy) and the lower ¬†gorge (which is rather more sporting and fun) or both. Bring plenty of water!

And to give you an idea of what to expect, these are some pix from last year:
