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.

  • Not the directions, there we were jumped more Bani Khalid in the water in the Wadi. Worth a trip for big and small. You should take at least a half-day time. A swimming pool"in nature, the water has a good bath temperature. According to Besucheranzahlt, there are "Young savages" that appear with breakneck head jumps of various heights into the water. Impressive.

  • After 2:30 about a car in Muscat in a barren landscape (plain and mountains), we arrive at the terminus of the dead-end road. Already a lot of cars. We condinuons walk, stroll with Palm trees, water channeled. Finally the show, the green oasis, one desire to swim! The pleasant water temperature, it is clear. A good moment of relaxation, return to shore where the fish come to feed of your dead skin... A beautiful spot, a new experience, unfortunately it's back... and unforgettable images...
