The wadi is a pretty place but has been somewhat spoiled by the influence of man. There are a number of black plastic pipes (150-200mm diameter) for water pumping running the length of the wadi and the place is littered with redundant bits of concrete...More

After a short boat ride (2 OMR) the hike starts for about 1 to 1.5 hour to get to the wadi. It is sometimes strenuous but it is well worth it. On the way you have great views. It can get crowded. Try to get...More

This Wadi is really the nicest one! You need a long hike to get there. It's not easy but if you reach it ... really so nice. It's best tho have some watershoes if you want to swim to the cave and waterfall. And that's...More

About 90 mins south of Muscat on major highways, this wadi gives you a small taste of the wonders of Oman. 1 Rial boat ride to north side, (otherwise free) then hike the 45 mins up the canyon in amazing beauty to the lake. Finally...More

Awesome 30-40minute hike up the wadi to a beautiful oasis! Definitely need a base level of fitness to get to the water as you’re walking over boulders! The swim to the secret cave is great & shoes are preferable due to a number of pebbles...More

When we arrived at Wadi Shab, it looked quite different from the photos. The boatman told us that that we will reach the wadi after a long walk. We have to walk past several huge stone structures, there are ups & downs on the way....More
