Wilāyat Wādī Banī Khālid is a Wilāyah in the Northern Governorate of the Eastern Region of Oman. Located about 126 mi from Muscat, and 120 km from Sur, the province has a wadi which serves as a destination for tourists, that is Wādī Banī Khālid

Beautiful day trip. Walk, hike climb up and down then take a swim in the crystal clean ponds.

Let the little fish nibble at your feet.

Look around a lot because your brain may not be able to process how beautiful this wadi is.

Time yourself to be back before sunset. Take your water with you.

TAKE YOUR GARBAGE BACK WITH YOU ___ PLEASE
believe it or not there are the ignorant one that think they can leave a pile of their garbage for someone else to collect.
TERRIBLE

Plenty of local young and old offering help if you need it.

Watch the weather forecasts for the area. Listen to the local advice. Rain in the mountains could result in flash floods even though you see no rain.

It is a challenging hike on some slippery rocks and jagged edges. If you can manage this it will be worth the hike!

Beautiful Wadi

We passed by Wadi Bani Khalid on the way to Jebel Akhdar. We saw a lot of local families swimming in the Wadi.

Unlike Wadi Shab, where you have to walk for a while before you reach the water, it's just a short walk from the car park until you reach the area where people are swimming.

I would love to come back again for a swim!

A short level walk from the car park. Several places to picnic and paddle your feet. There does appear to be a small cafe.

I prefer Wadi Shab
Feb 2020
This Wadi is good if you have problems with walking and climbing. It is a short way from the street and it is easy to walk. Afterwards you need to swim.For women you need shirts and leggings, you can't swim with swimming suit!!!!!
It is crowded specially at the weekends. Therefore I prefer Wadi Shab. It is not crowded and nicer.

Nice wadi
Mar 2020 • Couples
We were there super early, so had it all to our selves for 2 hours. It gets a bit crowed. But the main pool is huge, so room for everyone. It is a beautiful place, with lots of nice views. The upper pools are so nice, if you want to take the hike.

Lovely place to visit for a few hours

This is a really nice wadi to visit. It is large, picturesque, has a cafe for food, toilets and lovely area for swimming. The one thing to note is that there is a dress code for swimming, for men it is cover up the top half, wear a t-shirt, for women also cover up.

Refreshing swim

Swimming in the wadi is a nice experience. To get there please do not rely on google maps which directs you to the left shortly before arrival to a road that cannot be used with a normal car. Just follow the surfaced road till the end and you will find sufficient parking spots. After parking the car follow the path to the large waterhole and continue at the right to the cave. After 5 minutes you will find smaller waterholes which are less crowded.
