A truly beautiful and special hike.

You can start this hike from anywhere at the bottom of the wadi basin. Our start point should be aligned with the FINISH point (there was a glitch with the GPS but the Finish is correct).

Easiest entry to the wadi is from the South/West next to the road. My start point is recommended for 4x4 but you can also enter the wadi from next to the main road - just add 10mins to your walk)

Lots of greenery and pools (even in late February). Plenty of shaded spots to rest and have a picnic.

The majority of this is route is easy. The first 1/4 was busy with other walkers at 9am but we barely saw anyone on the rest of the hike.

You can extend this hike by continuing further up the wadi - we turned back after 2hrs.

    Hi Lubs.Patel You can easily access the wadi from next to the road by Sedan. (Just enter the wadi closer to the road rather than my start point - it would only add 10mins to your walk)

    Please can you update your rating from 3 stars if you enjoyed the trail?

    Hi Anton,
    Wanted to check with you, is it advisable to go on this hike at this time? Say coming weekend?
    Asking coz the climate is hot and it hasnt rained this entire season, therefore was wondering there wouldnt be much greenery or water pools now. Would you recommend doing this during the cooler season?

    We went a month ago and there was plenty of greenery in the first 1/4 (mostly due to there being irrigated farms) and a few pools.

    As the weather gets hotter, be sure to go earlier or later in the day, bring plenty of water, sun screen and a hat too. Everyone’s tolerance varies so only go if you feel comfortable but it a beautiful walk and it’s easy to turn back at any time.

    Approximately how long does it take to go until the further point on the track?

    If this is your first hike I would allow 2-2.5 hours to reach the end of this track, then it should be slightly shorter back (down hill and you will be familiar with the turns etc).

    It would be possible to increase the length of this hike by continuing further up the wadi.

    As the return is the same path, you can turn around anytime you want

    It is a moderate to challenging terrain and first timers should attempt only if they are good to great physical fitness shape.
