Great quiz !

However,Jebel Jais is 1934m ,not 1892 m. Also can you accept Jabal Bil Ays as it is another name for that moutain?

Thank you! 1892m is the highest point of the mountain on the Emirati side. The last 42 metres of verticality are in Oman. I can certainly accept Jabal Bil Ays as a type-in, should work now :)

I was tempted to keep it as "overseas", just for the pun :)

Anyways, the grammatical mistakes have been fixed.

What did I type that counted for Achomi?

That would be Persian. Achomi is a Persian dialect similar to Farsi and Dari, for example, and so it is a type in. I just realised that I had forgotten to add it as a language on the map altogether, but this has been fixed! Turns out that people got it through typing "Persian Gulf"!
