Format: Paperback
This is a great guide and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in hiking in Oman. The maps are clear (if basic but adequate) and the hikes described very rewarding, ranging in length from 1 hour to 2 days each way.
The only complaint I might possibly have is that it only covers a rather small part of the country - adding some hikes for the Dhofar region down south for example would be great.

To avoid disappointment, be prepared that this is not a book!
It is a boxed set of a 16 pages long pamphlet entitled "Trekking Handbook" which contains general trekking info for the country, a decent country/regional map, and 12 folded individual leaflets/"cards" each describing a particular hike with a route map.
They are all printed on pretty hard, durable paper/carton and do the job fine, but quite why they were not bound into a book format is a bit of a mystery.
