Closed permanently to preserve it as a area of natural beauty. After speaking to a local resident, the area was abused with graffiti and trash was dumped with no care for the natural habitat.

It is inside hill between Khorfakkan and Dibba Fujairahroad. Bettertogo with range rover or station wage car. This is the best place for families and couples to enjoy. Better to carry food or can cook there it self. Can enjoy water falls and bathing.

When we reached here, the wadi wurayah was closed for renewal, so we drove around 1 hour to the Oman border. We were amazed to drive through the dirt road with nice views around. A nice driving experience.
