If you have got to oman, hired a car, packed your hiking shoes and swimsuit and found the car park by following advice from other trip advisors here, then you are probably adventurous enough to enjoy this. It's not a heavy duty trek but its also not for those who are a bit awkward on their feet or uncomfortable with the unknown. I wouldn't take my mother, my neice or some of my friends because they would find it hard and that would get in the way of the enjoyment of the walk and what you get at the end. Parts of the walk have paths you can easily spot, others are just a scramble through boulders and thats mainly due to a couple of episodes of bery heavy weather that have washed away some of the route that was built to make it easier to pass. so now its a bit back to the wild, which many people will prefer! It was a brilliant day, the best or our three days there. When we got to the pools, we were worried about leaving our bags behind as you really do have to swim, you can't wade through with them above your head. We had taken passport, camera, money etc.. We agreed with another couple to take turns visiting the pools. If I went again I would just go with water and a small towel (and a waterproof camera!!) and leave everything else in the car. It really is worth the swim.. There were people asking how it was, was it safe, did you have to go underwater.. Some didn't do the final swim into the cave because they were too nervous. It's understandable as the space you go through is small.. Whilst there was airspace (we didnt have to swim under water) when we did it, I guess water levels might changed. We both went into the cave and I am so glad we did. The walk and the end experience is lovely. Highly recommended.
