Leaving the desert you drive to Wadi Bani Khalid. At this point, toward the tip of the Arabian Peninsula, the Hajar Mountains are beginning to lose their dramatic height.
Steep but fairly low wadi walls enclose the deep green and blue pools, although the stream in the wadi does disappear into a satisfyingly narrow and rushing canyon.
It is one of the prettier parts of Oman and the exposed geology is dramatic and interesting.
If there is water in the pools, and if you wish to do so, then we recommend going for a dip in the pools — but please remember that there are no changing facilities there!
