Wadi Shab, Sur
(4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Wonderful place to visit if you are a nature lover-swim in the clear fresh water ponds which will lead you to a famous 'cave waterfall' 
  • There are boats that take you across the wadi. Then you walk down the wadi, but without great emotions. If you don't have time you can also jump, do not lose this great hike.
