Wadi Shab, Sur

4.7
#1 of 50 in Parks in Oman
Hike your way through narrow canyons leading to crystal clear pools and hidden waterfalls at Wadi Shab. Framed within a barren sandstone ravine, this lush oasis features lower pools that provide a source of drinking water, while the higher ones remains popular with swimmers and those seeking pristine scenery. Meander along a sloping trail lined with banana palms, making your way past village ruins and plantations to shimmering pools and a cavernous waterfall. Restrooms are located at the base of the valley. Avoid hiking in the midday heat.

  • Very beautiful canyon. Easy access ... the canyon entrance is near the road and can be reached with a very short boat ride. Near the road is a small kiosk. At the end of the canyon you have the possibility to swim further into the canyon and enter a cave with a waterfall through a crevice.
  • It's a nice wadi for off road vehicles. I enjoyed a lot
