Wadi Shab is a very popular popular outdoor attraction in Oman for both locals and expats, and people go there for nature, to swim in the fresh water pools or just to have a barbecue. The main attraction of the wadi is the waterfall in the cave, which you can reach after a roughly 40 mins hike and swimming in 2-3 pools. People love going to this wadi because the pools are always full of clear blue water! Group tour in Wadi Shab involves a passage through the gorge. We recommend to have sneakers or special shoes with non-slip soles. We also recommend to have Slippers crocs type for a comfortable transition on a large round pebble. Please note that the tour is for the whole day (9: 00-18: 00) .Lunch and refreshments are included.

Our guide Ilyas collected the 4 of us from our hotel and after picking up 1 more person we set off collecting karakchai tea and water on the way. Walking the Wadi on a hot day was quite difficult, scrambling over boulders and balancing along channels but the pools for swimming

EmerBren has given good views and advice. I would stress that you need to be comfortable swimming in pools out of your depth without much relief in places. Also the floor of the wadi is very very slippery in places so you really need good swimming sandals with good grip, don’t
