From Muscat: Wadi Shab & Bimmah Sinkhole Full-Day Tour

1. From Muscat: Wadi Shab & Bimmah Sinkhole Full-Day Tour

Discover the incredible oasis of Wadi Shab - one of the last places in Oman where you can chill in fresh blue water surrounded by mountains. Enjoy a rewarding full-day experience as you explore this spectacular waterfall in a cave. Start the tour with pick up from your hotel in Muscat. Hop into an air-conditioned vehicle and set off on a 2-hour scenic drive through the otherworldly landscapes of Oman. Along the route, stop at a local coffee shop to try an energizing Omani tea. When you arrive at your destination, hidden away in the canyon of the dry river Wadi-Shab, take a very quick boat ride to the other side of the bank. From here, embark on your 40-minute hike.  During the walk, experience the awesome power of nature which has forged the rock formations of this impressive canyon. Observe how the local farmers live and work, maintaining their crops in rough, rocky lands using the old irrigation system as their water supply. Be sure to bring along your waterproof cameras and shoes so that when you reach the lake you can snap some photos and walk around the magnificent site.  Admire the cascade of the waterfall and take a refreshing dip in the beautiful blue water to cool off from the heat. On the way back, stop to see a beautiful lake located in the Bimmah Sinkhole.  Finally, return to the vehicle and begin the drive back to Muscat where you will be dropped off at your hotel and the tour concludes.

This was an amazing experience! Mohammed was an amazing tour guide. He knew so much information, and let us know exactly what we were in for regarding the hike to Wadi Shab. he made sure my group was comfortable and safe at all times. Anything thing we needed ( food, water, ATM, life jackets, etc..) he did his best to make sure we had them. He remembered all of our names with ease and made fun conversation. And you can tell he really loves his job! There's nothing better than doing something out of your comfort zone than doing it with someone who is extremely friendly and confident!! Probably the most ORGANIZED tour I've booked on here also. When I book group tours, I'm usually solo, so this was a pleasant surprise. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

На Вади Шаб обязательно стоит поехать, впечатления надолго, особенно с гидом Ильей. Организация на уровне, все четко, очень душевно и хорошо провели время. Илья везде с нами прошел и проплавал, наснимал, накормил, все как обещано)
