Entrance to wadi is by boat , though not the best & clean of entrance . Though after crossing 100 meters , you will be over a scenic wadi , with pools of water & palm trees . You still have to walk for 30...More
Came here on a daytrip from Muscat on a friday. Crowd was mostly made up of foreign tourists. The place was quite packed with tour buses and large groups of sorts. U have to pay 1 OMR per person to cross the river bank to...More
This is an essential experience when you're in Oman. It is truly beautiful. Just some words of advice:
1. It takes about 45 minutes to hike into the Wadi.
2. Don't plan to be there after dark. It can be treacherous.
3. You need proper...More
It was nice to refresh a little after a 45 minute walk, although it was more of a promenade through water than swimming, but the walk itself was worth it as it is the true natural wonder. So don't go fast, take your time and...More
Our day trip to the wadi was even better than anticipated. Glorious weather, short trip in local mans boat and off on foot for 45 minute trek in the spectacular gorge like surrounds of Omani mountains. Friendly faces and fun while swimming was one of...More
What a wonderful experience- we hired a car and drove ourselves there with gps. We were 4 adults and a 2 years old. You pay 1 riyal each to cross the river to hike to the wadi- it is about 40 minutes there and then...More
The 40min trek is beautiful but the wadi itself is overrated. Dirty water and over crowded most of the times. We trekked with a 4yr old. While the trek at places was difficult for d kid, it was manageable but the end result was disappointing.
Firstly, this was a lot tougher than expected.
From the car park under the motorway bridge it is a 30-45min trek to the start of the Wadi. You take a small boat 1 OMR - $2 for the return crossing, to the opposite shore and...More

First, be prepared for a long walk, over rough terrain. Having said that, once you reach the swimming area, there will probably be others, with their belongings, placed along the bank or shoreline. If you're uncomfortable leaving your personal stuff alone (actually, you can watch it from the water), then bring a waterproof bag, as was suggested. When I made the hike in 2017, I started with 15 people, but 11 turned back. Suggestion : I took along two blow-up floats from the Dollar General store, which made it easier to float around, then I gave them to some of the children, when I left. Hope this helps. Have fun, be safe.
