Wadi Darbat, Salalah

(4.4/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 6 hours Jeep Safari, always 4 guests per car. CA 5 stops while driving with explanations. Food as a picnic very well organized. Camels in the vicinity. Remarkable the many tourists this tour in flip flops and without head protection.

  • This place is so lovely! The water is quite clear and there are animals everywhere! Cows, camels, goats, even donkeys. It is absolutely worth the drive, the road is a bit windy and steep with animals ...  more »
  • The evergreen oasis formally invites to the hiking and there are seemingly infinitely beautiful motives for enthusiasts with camera and co. to the scan. That you should not miss. Camels walk around freely and are always curious. Only drawback: try little to drink, because there are no toilets far and wide...

  • 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
  • Very beautiful place during summer.
