Full description
In the morning, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Muscat to commence your journey. During the 90-minute drive to Wadi Shab, enjoy the stunning coastline of Sur.

At the entrance to Wadi Shab, take a boat across Wadi Lake. Then, walk to the Wadi Canyon and enjoy the spectacular rock formations, steep cliffs, sprawling fruit plantations, and pools along the way. 

After the 45-minute walk, reach the famed pools. Slip into your swimwear and walk or swim into the smaller canyon. Move through the meandering pools to reach the spectacular last pool. Here you have to swim as the water is deep. At the end of the pool, you will reach an enchanting cave with a waterfall inside.

After soaking in the captivating views of the cave, you can swim back. Stretch out in the sun and enjoy some snacks before heading back to Muscat. During the return drive, you will make a stop to take photographs at the Bimmah Sinkhole Lake Park.
