One of the Sultanate’s best-known wadis

One of the Sultanate’s best known wadis, Wadi Bani Khalid is a geographical wonderland of pools, caves and mountains. Unlike other wadis, it enjoys a constant flow of water all year round – perfect for visiting any season.

Everyone has heard about Wadi Rum, one of the main attractions in Jordan. Great. Few people have heard of the wadis in Oman. I think that is great, too. Well, at least my selfish side thinks like that – I always like to feel I have the places for myself! Who doesn’t, right? So, on my last trip to Oman, I went visiting Wadi Bani Khalid, a desert paradise, in my opinion.

Visiting Wadi Bani Khalid, Oman
For those not familiar with what a wadi is, it’s a dry riverbed that contains water only in heavy rains. It is also the Arabic word for valley. But at Wadi Bani Khalid, like at many wadis in Oman, the green coloured water flows all year round, making it perfect to visit all year round. Oh, did I say it is an oasis?
