Full description
Wadi Shab is one of the last places in Oman where you can chill in fresh blue water surrounded by mountains. The true reward of this full-day experience is the waterfall in the cave; locals say it's an oasis. To discover this amazing destination, hidden away in the canyon of the dry river Wadi-Shab, begin the tour with a two-hour drive from Muscat. Along the way, take in the truly otherworldly landscapes of Oman.  Stop at a local coffee shop to try an energizing Omani tea before arriving to the destination. After a very quick boat ride to the other side of the bank, embark on a 40-minute hiking journey. The canyon will show you not only the power of nature, but also the lifestyle of local farmers. To this day, farmers do their rocking in rough, rocky lands, using the old irrigation system as their water supply. Bring along your waterproof cameras and shoes, because, when you reach the lake, you'll want to snap some photos and walk around through the magnificent site. On the way back, stop to see a beautiful lake located in a sinkhole.

    A wonderful trip, very impressive! WadiShav: A grandiose landscape! After 40 minutes of hiking we were rewarded with a refreshing crossing of the wadi! After a very tasty lunch in a traditional restaurant, we went to the sinkhole. Our Giude Aziz accompanied us on this wonderful excursion. He kindly "looked after" us, everything was perfect. @Aziz: Thank you for these great hours!

    It was just a dream! Our guide Ilya was super nice and everything went smoothly. Communication was very easy and we were picked up on time. The tour itself was beautiful! The nature is really impressive and it is a unique experience. However, you have to be prepared for the fact that you have to hike there and back for about 40 minutes. So you should be good on foot. But the trip is definitely worth it, we definitely recommend it.

    The tour is wonderful for those who would like to have a special nature experience. First you hike in the gorge until you have to switch to swimming. If it gets too difficult or has enough, it goes back. Those who dare to keep going will be rewarded with a waterfall at the end, under which you can take a nice warm shower. Splendid! Our private driver Abdullah looked after us wonderfully. A lovely guy. Thank you!
