    Wadi Bani Khalid

    February 21, 2018 in Oman ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    There is only one road and to get there you have to climb a super steep, 18% average ascent for about 3km. And you have to do it twice (if you not decide to stay in the Wadi for the rest of your life) because the mountain ridge simply is 'standing in the way'.

    It's great that the Omanis take it easy with us, so that we could pitch our tent 20 meters from the natural pools. Although this site is being overrun with tourists doing a daytrip from Muscat every noon, we had a quiet, refreshing and relaxing time - there's nobody in the mornings and people disappear quickly in the afternoon to see the sunset in the Wahibah Sands. Perfect for us and we decided to stay another night to enjoy the pearl of beauty.
