Wadi Bani Khalid

One of the Sultanate’s best-known wadis

De Wadi Bani Khalid is een van de bekendste wadi’s van het Sultanaat en biedt een geografisch wonderland van vijvers, grotten en bergen. In tegenstelling tot andere wadi’s is er hier het hele jaar door een constante aanvoer van water, ideaal voor een bezoek in elk seizoen.

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?
