Dip in an emerald green pool amidst limestone cliffs fringed with vegetation at Wadi Bani Khalid, a striking landscape cut into the Al Hajar mountains. Admire waterfalls pouring over boulders, explore caves with strange light, and snap photos of the green and red rocks--the result of copper oxide and iron ore. A scenic hike will take you to natural springs, through plantations and villages. A traditional Omani village en route has all the basic tourist facilities.

  • After parking the car we walk for about 10 minutes. For women on the right there are separated in order to put the costume. There was no restaurant before you pay then pick out the food. If you don't swim, you can sit on and put your feet in the bathroom and small fish will you do mordicchieranno your feet will make you a great pedicure. This a good experience.

  • ... If you've been to in sour or Ibra or just passing by. From the main road, the area is accessible by regular car, if you have the courage a little easy mountain driving on good roads. From the car park at the end of the road there is a short walk through the palm groves for the first of several pools, where there is opportunity to bathe. There is also a hiking trail about 1 km up through the Wadi, which will take you past several pools and completely to Muqal-cave. We found your way without problems, but there are also some big boys who hang out on the spot, hoping to earn a dime. The site is on holidays, a popular picnic spot for Omani, and there is also an outdoor cafeteria with simple dishes and cold drinks. Note: women should appear in comely bathing suit-and younger women who are travelling without male companions must be prepared for a lot of attention from young men on the spot.

  • This is another great valley to explore in Oman.. Beautiful rocky mountains with interesting hike and amazing walkways beside the natural water pools.
