Al Shab hike


Wadi Al Shab is one of the most popular gorges in the Sultanate. Its main attraction is the incredible waterfall inside one of the caves. A short boat ride across a small ravine leads to the wadi, a lush paradise with an astounding gorge situated between the cliffs. Sometimes, Omani women in traditional dress can be seen climbing the cliffs to collect herbs. A one-hour hike along an undulated mountainous terrain and a bit of swimming in natural emerald pools are required to reach the caves. There are several caves to swim in and explore, including the one with the fantastic waterfall.

  • Natural underground pools
  • Hidden caves to swim in
  • 1.5-hour drive from Muscat
