Wadi Bani Khalid
About 270 kilometers from the capital Muscat, you can find a wadi, which forms a palm-rich landscape in the midst of a hot mountain desert. The Wadi Bani Khalid appears diverse and enthralling in the desert region of Oman. Several sources, including the Ain Hamouda, Ain al Sarooj and Ain Dawwa supply the most renowned wadi in Oman year-round with crystal clear water.
Rippling waterfalls, clear natural pools and hidden caves make the Wadi Bani Khalid Oman a true adventure playground. Many Omanis and foreigners have created an idyllic and unique home in the beautiful wadi. Four times a year, part of the dry wadi transforms into a raging river, which often cannot be crossed even with a 4×4 drive. During the dry season, a narrow concrete path leads to the source of the oasis from a parking lot – from there, you can head for a small, quaint restaurant in the Wadi serving regional delicacies. Enjoy the invariably warm temperatures in the Wadi Bani Khalid and experience relaxing bathing pleasure in crystal clear water.
