Wadi Shab

Wadi you know, a beautiful mountain ravine along the coast in Oman? Sorry, wadi you gonna do about the bad puns? Hike it. That's what we did.

So what's a wadi? Basically a steep, narrow canyon, frequently with a stream running down the center. A bunch of craggy rocks on each side, dramatic views, palm trees, a nice place to take a little trek.

The entrance to Wadi Shab at the Gulf of Oman.

A bathroom sign, a bit lost in translation. The typical mix of tropical flora and severe canyon rock.

Easing into the wadi, a beautiful mix of textures and light.

The river trickles through, but occasionally forms a nice pool. Hello hiker!

Another pool. Arabian paradise.
