TRIP DETAILS

This is a long but exciting trip, swimming in turquoise pools of the less travelled Hawir section of Wadi Bani Khalid.
Away from touristic pools, this canyon is a great adventure for everyone who enjoys water fun.
We scramble down the valley of boulders and along the local ‘Fala’j, series of canals that help irrigate local farms and crops, until we reach the first stunning pools.
Beautiful turquoise water, long swims, impressive jumps and plenty of good route finding, make this canyon a great adventure.
The canyon boasts an impressive waterfall with great jumping points from the timid meter high to the really big stuff.
As the pools get smaller, there is another 1 hour of trekking ahead of us to get out of the canyon to meet the cars.
