Full day tour to East Coast, Wadis and Sink Hole


Today we are going to take a very exiting route leading us to some of the most beautiful places in Oman.
We start from Muscat and drive to East Coast. Our first stop is Wadi Shab. Here we cross a small lake by local boat and hike up to the Wadi. It will take about 30-40 minutes. The walk is easy, pleasant and has lots of opportunity for impressive photos. At the end of the walk, we swim in fresh pools to the hidden cavern with waterfall. Return back to the boats the same way.
Please make sure that you have your comfortable walking shoes, swim wear and a towel.
As well you need to have a water proof camera to be able to swim and take photos inside the cavern.
We have our light lunch at local restaurant and lead to Sur for a short sightseeing including dhow building yard, light house and city corniche.
On the way back to Muscat we have a short stops at Qalkhat ancient town and Sink Hole at Bimmah for photos.
Return to Muscat by late afternoon.

A Recent Review of this tour

A fantastic day. Trek to waterfall at Wadi Shab worth the effort! Picturesque; local farms & crops & amazing irrigation system. Drop into pools along the way to cool off! Our guide Valentina provided hiking expertise, local knowledge of flora & birds & nutritious goodies with plenty of water. Great local knowledge/history of the area/country. Picturesque drive along coast through villages to Sur: dhow building & sink hole; then return to Muscat with backdrop of mountains at sunset. Best day ever!
