Exploring the Al Huwail Canyon (Wadi Kitnah) on March 23rd 2019
Mar 2019 • Solo
We drove from Dubai into Oman using the Al Buraimi Sa'ara border crossing. This one allows UAE residence Visa holders (expats) to cross into Oman, at least as of posting this review. I even explored the option of trying to cross through the Hili border into Oman, which I suspected wasn't allowed for expats and right enough, I was turned back. So if your not a GCC national, do not attempt to cross through Hili into Oman (this is the border crossing close to Al Waha Mall) Crossing through Hili makes the drive shorter which is why I was curious to know if I could.
Anyway, getting to the pools is simple and not a very long drive once you cross the border, just under 20km. The water was clean and there was even a little waterfall still going this time of year. We entered one of the blue Sulfur pools that an unreal blue, almost something out of a movie or cartoon. The surrounding areas arent anything spectacular to camp in but its alright. Kind of reminds me of the Fujeira area where you have all those quarry's and crusher spots.
Overall a great place make a quick getaway to if you dont have too much time as it isnt too far into Oman.
