Wadi Darbat, Salalah

(4.2/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • The Wadi is one of the most beautiful regions of Oman. In January, the River was still water but the riverbed is still beautiful in monsoon.

  • We visited this OASIS along with our 3 little girls with a rental car. Getting there is very easy to follow the directions coming from Mirbat that from Salalah. The girls had fun very admiring dromedaries and other loose animals along the way. At the bottom there is a small bar. Interesting excursion. The Oman is an extraordinary country

  • The Wadi Darbat is rather large and very spacious. There's thousands of camels, donkeys and goats to see. The camel herds are constantly on the move and always seen especially for photographers and grateful motive. Also by the nature, the Wadi is very beautiful and diverse. There are many plants, butterflies, and birds. Back at the great Park, it smells like a flower shop, the flowers in the Park is impressive.
