Wadi Darbat, Salalah

(180+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
A year-round natural spring, Wadi Darbat brings life to the valley in which it lies. Snaking through hills blanketed with thick, lush foliage, the surroundings burst with color; the vibrant green hue follows the water all the way to the Arabian Gulf. Amble your way along several nearby walking trails, stopping at shady picnic spots before exploring the nearby watery caves. Rent one of the small boats or pedaloes to make your way across the misty spring's surface. In the autumn (September-November), majestic waterfalls cascade their way down the surrounding hilltops. Bring plenty of mosquito repellant. Plan your Wadi Darbat visit and explore what else you can see and do in Salalah using our Salalah itinerary planner.

  • Nice place but especially during the khariff season...its real beauty comes out with the arrival of rains...
  • Lovely place to picnic by the Riverside. I went in February, and so it was a little dry, but still beautiful.. would be awesome in July/ August during the rains
  • Excellent weather and greenery best time only during khareef when water and boating is available....!
  • Great natural lake
  • Disappointed. Much better places in Dhofar than this
