Wadi Darbat, Salalah
(4.3/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Would definitely recommend a visit. Taking a boat ride with wild camels roaming around and crossing the river right in front of us was amazing and unforgettable. Life jackets are available for kids. T...  more »
