Bilad Sayt Village



A cluster of stone-and-mud dwellings laid out like steps along the slope of a rocky hill, along with the lush rows of date palms and patch worked terraced fields make up the old-world appeal of Bilad Sayt.

A remarkable sight of the impressive Jabal Shams range, surround this village. Deep within these mountains, crystal streams of water come forth and supply the village's two main falaj. Aside from this, honey produced by wild bees are also found in the mountain caves.

The Bilad Sayt enjoys moderate daytime temperature even during summer and a especially pleasant weather in winter. This is mainly due to its high location.

The Bilayad Sayt can easily be reached from the town of Al Rustaq. From the town centre, just drive towards Al Wabi and turn right in the direction of the Wadi Bani Auf.

Further on, turn at an intersection that will take you to Bilayad Sayt. The 15km route traverses very rugged terrain and at one point, goes round the sharp edge of the wadi that curves past Bilad Sayt.

The final approach to the village involves a steep climb and an equally dizzying descent before the mountain oasis comes into view.
