Wadi Ghul, known as the ‘Omani Grand Canyon’ or ‘The Grand Canyon of Arabia’, is located in Al Hamra. It is near Jebal Shams, the highest mountain peak in Oman. The amazing view of the massive canyon is an experience you should not miss.
Go for an incredible four-hour walk through the Wadi Ghul cliffs. Glance down at the breathtaking canyon and feel the hair-raising thrill of its terrifying depths. The trail starts at the edge of the village close to the canyon and skirts the rim of the canyon. Hence the name ‘balcony walk’. Explore the abandoned village of Wadi Ghul, check out its terraced farming, and swim in the lake inside the cave. You have to scramble up huge boulders to reach the lake. Take a break and relax there. Remember to take your camera to snap the jaw-dropping views.
Go early in the morning for the hike and make sure to carry appropriate footwear. Bring your tent and camp out at the best viewpoint available and carry home an unforgettable experience.
