A spectacular spot with lots of pools to swim/walk through. Very popular and so can get busy and like so many Omani beauty spots it is spoilt by litter - sadly mainly left by Omanis rather than foriegn tourists.
Visited Wadi bani Khalid in November with my wife. It's a very cool place for couples, families. It's a wadi surrounded by small hill. For adventure one can venture into caves which are nearby from where lot of people start swimming and come till the...More

There will be snakes and lizards around, but I didn’t see any there. That isn’t to say there are none, they were just difficult to spot. I lived in Oman for 11 years and there’s generally a good variety of snakes and other reptiles around, although not always visible.
