Snake Canyon Oman

LITTLE SNAKE CANYON (Wadi Bani Awf - Oman)

The Little Snake canyon trip takes about three hours and is a mix of all above mentioned activities. It`s not very strenuous (no difficult techniques or exhausting steep parts) . However it is paramount that you are fit and flexible.
The trip goes through one of the most spectacular narrow gorges of Oman.
While in the gorge, you walk between two high walls and far, far above your head you will notice a strip of sky. This can be scary for some people.
You cannot go up anywhere to cut it short and once you jump down into the first pool you cannot turn back either = point of no return.

Pools are mostly shallow but can sometimes be quite deep. So being able to swim is a must.

Near the end of the track, you will havea stretch of cave-swimming (not for the feable hearted).

A few big boulders on the way but this is not too difficult and fun.

At the entrance and exit there are a few clean, shallow water pools. This is also a nice picnic area with a few trees for a welcome shade.
