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.

    Mahmoud made this trip the best experience I’ve ever had in my life. Omani to the core and made me understand what life means here and how life should mean. A truly memorable human being who reminds you of what is important in life and also made swimming through the valleys an easy task for me and my brother. The waters were warm and the caves were stunning! Would definitely do this every week if I could. Thanks Mahmoud !

    Ein wunderbarer Ausflug, sehr beeindruckend! WadiShav: Eine grandiose Landschaft! Nach 40 min Wanderung wurden wir belohnt mit einer erfrischenden Durchquerung des Wadi! Nach sehr leckeren Lunch in einem traditionellen Restaurant ging es dann zum Sinkhole. Auf diesem wunderbaren Ausflug hat uns unser Giude Aziz begleitet. Er hat uns freundlich "umsorgt", es war alles perfekt. @Aziz: vielen Dank für diese tollen Stunden!

    Es war einfach nur ein Traum! Unser Guide Ilya war super nett und alles hat reibungslos geklappt. Die Kommunikation war sehr einfach und wir wurden rechtzeitig abgeholt. Die Tour selbst war wunderschön! Die Natur ist wirklich beeindruckend und es ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis. Jedoch muss man sich darauf einstellen, dass man ca. 40 Minuten hin und zurück wandern muss. Man sollte also gut zu Fuß sein. Aber der Ausflug lohnt sich auf jeden Fall, wir empfehlen ihn auf jeden Fall weiter.
