Wakan Village Tour
Wakan Village Tour
One of the most popular canyons in Oman and the most accessible one.
A large turquoise pool and lush greenery greet us at the start. We take a small boat to the other bank where the famous Wadi Shab trek starts. This easy hike will take us all along the canyon’s water pools and tall golden walls.
As we hike, explore some sections of the ancient irrigation system “falaj”, learn about local lifestyle and the challenges the mountain villages face on a daily basis. At the end of the trek, if the water level allows, we dive into the pool and swim through a narrow tunnel into a small cave with a waterfall, the scenes inside are fantastic. Our way back is the reverse route with more stunning views ahead.
We enjoy a filling lunch at a local restaurant in the village and make our way to the last stop of the day – Bimmah Sinkhole.
This sinkhole is quite a spectacle with golden colour rock framing a bold turquoise pool. Brackish water in the Sinkhole is what gives it its colour. We hike down for a swim and head back.
