Wadi Shab Tours

Wadi Shab is the most unspoiled, easily accessed and perhaps the most beautiful valley in Oman. Bright turquoise waters flow through tall canyon walls of orange and yellow sandstone, over rocks and into small pools and waterfalls, and a refreshing swim in the cool, clear water is a highlight for most visitors. It’s the feeling that you’ve found your own personal oasis in the middle of the desert, though the wadi is popular with both locals and tourists.

Outside of exploring the natural beauty of the emerald-green pools of water and large rock formations, there is a partially submerged cave to see. The canyon floor is dotted with lush greenery, and the area is surrounded by date plantations and banana palms. Unlike neighboring Wadi Tiwi there is no road through the valley, so progress must be made on foot. 

Practical Info

To reach Wadi Shab, drive east toward Sur along the main highway. It is about 100 kilometers (a two-hour drive) from Muscat. From the main highway, exit at Tiwi and drive into Tiwi village. The entrance of Wadi Shab is at the west end of the town. Park your vehicle as close to the bridge as possible. Boats run across the water to a starting point for walks for 1 OR. It takes about two hours to hike through the whole valley.
