The Omani Village that has just 3.5 hours of sunlight a day!

A village in Oman almost 2,000 meters above sea level is one of the only locations in the world to have only 3.5 hours of sunlight! 

The village, named Wakan, experiences sunrise at 11am and and then the sun sets again 3 and a half hours later at 2:30pm! The only way to reach the village is by narrow twists and turns up the mountains, in 4x4's. But once you get there check out how beautiful it is! 

The Saudi newspaper Ajel said the village has one of the shorted fasting times during Ramadan in the world. Though it's not clear where people living in the village follow Wakan fasting times, or Saudi Arabia.
