SATURDAY 26TH NOVEMBER 08:00AM - 13:00PM This is a truly exceptional wadi to hike up and through, with amazing views, stunning scenery and will be in the shade for the majority of the morning. We will meet at the local mosque, at the arranged time, before heading into the opening of the wadi itself. As we hike through the wadi bed, zig zagging through the wadi floor boulders, you will quickly see the side walls of the wadi encompass us as they rise up to around 100m above us. The deeper we go into the wadi the narrower it becomes. This is where we come across several sections that require some basic scrambling over the larger boulders. As we progress deeper and higher up the wadi, there are a couple of short, but steep dry waterfalls. Here our fully qualified instructor will assist you with a rope for your upmost safety. Finally we will visit the ancient village above the wadi before following the wadi edge back down to the start of the wadi and back to the mosque we started at.
