Wadi Bani Khalid

A wonderful part of Oman for exploring
  • 1

Time Out Says

Make the approximate 250km drive out of Muscat to find one of Oman’s greatest natural beauty spots. It is one of several wadis in the area between East and West Hajar and offers good hiking, swimming (the pools often have water) and picnic or camping options. Tour operators, conveniently, visit the location due to the undeniable beauty, but can mean it will get busy. A short walk from the lush natural pools, which are Instagram gold, you will find striking caves and much to explore.
