Located on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula is the nation of Oman. Known for its rich culture, beautiful natural features, and its many attractions, Oman serves as a popular tourist destination. The many desserts, rock formations and beautiful beaches have also made Oman a popular sporting and leisure destination which offers many exciting and thrilling activities.
One of the most stunning and tranquil natural features of Oman is its Wadis. Wadi, which translates to “valley” in Arabic, is a dried up riverbed found along mountainside valleys. They are known for their tranquillity and beauty, and a wadi that is one of Oman’s most popular is Wadi Shab. Located 76km away from the village of Quaryyat, the Wadi Shab fuses the beauty of both coastal and inland features which create a marvellous scenic attraction.
The path to Wadi Shab must be made on foot, as vehicles cannot venture into the rocky area of this wadi. A brisk walk is sure to be rewarded upon arrival to this wadi, as one can witness the soothing and serene ambience, and the many beautiful sights of this heavenly attraction. Wadi Shab has seven pristine and sparkling emerald green pools; which are dotted with several boulders, and many grand rock formations. One can also witness several small farms and date palms, which are nurtured by the rich resources of the wadi. There is also a cave in Wadi Shab with a pool within it, and serves as a highlight of this attraction. This pool in the cave is illuminated by streams of light that creep in through the cave, to give it a rather serene and tranquil effect. The Wadi Shab is excellent location for a relaxing swim in the cool and sparkling waters of the pools, to make a few thrilling dives into the water, or to just soak up the sun in the relaxing ambience of this attraction. Therefore for a truly blissful and serene experience enjoyable by the whole family, visit the Wadi Shab of Oman!
