a picturesque wadi

Reachable by 4×4, Wadi Hoqain is a picturesque wadi about 50km from Al Rustaq. Framed by date plantations and rocky mountains, this wadi is especially known for its natural water pools and small waterfalls – the perfect place for picnic.

This wadi is an easy and relaxing offroad drive featuring some nice water crossings and a magnificent castle at the end. Technically very easy, it compensates the so-so thrilling with some ruins ready to be explored and the newly renovated Al Hazm fort at the end, where you can recover and listen to some Arabic stories.
