Between sea and desert, a swath of craggy mountains are rich with exquisite valleys or wadis, where rugged terrain shelters clear, fresh-water pools, lush palm groves and waterfalls. These natural features are treasured by our mystery country and attract the range of visitors, from picnicking local families to adventure-seeking travelers from abroad. Around the edges, wadis can be gentle and easy to access but most often a 4-wheel drive will be required. A hike into the depths of a wadi will likely involve climbing over large rocks and wading or swimming through fresh water pools.
