Trek Wadi Abyad
Discover Wadi Abyad and its white and crystal blue pools. Geologically very interesting, as one of the few places you can see outcrops of the Semail Ophiolite, the earth’s crust, the Moho and, below, the mantle.
This trip will take you to a wadi that has water running in it all year round. You will have the opportunity to take a short walk for half an hour or more if you wish.
The wadi lays at the bottom of the Hajar mountains and is the outlet for the water onto the plains.
The wadi has pools of water which appear white and crystal blue. This is due to the calcium deposits and other minerals that color the formations. The best pools take half an hour to reach: here you can relax with nobody around and dip your feet into the water ( if you’re lucky fish will come and nibble your feet, this seems to be the new fad around for pedicures, you will get yours for free..!)
