It feels like I have been in Oman for a long time but it's only been 3 days, I think I feel this way because I have done and seen so much within the short period of time that I have been here. Today I took a tour with a private guide that came highly recommended and our first stop was at Wadi Shab which is the most popular Wadi in Oman that's an hour and a half away from Muscat by car.
To get to the pools of Wadi Shab you have to take a short boat ride then hike for about 45 minutes to an hour depending on your fitness level and pace. The only challenging aspect of the hike is navigating the very slippery rocks along the way, that's why comfortable shoes with good grip come in handy. The surrounding areas are so beautiful, making the hike worth the while.
