Wadi Tiwi is accessed by a 1 ½ hour journey by car to Qalhat, then 2 hours off road to the village of Onq Kabir. We camp overnight so to get an early start on the canyon in the morning. A picturesque trek down to the village terraces into the wadi takes us eventually to a series of crystal clear pools. We descend a 10m abseil, followed by more pools, some 200m long. After around 2 hours we reach a cave, a 10m abseil drops us off a waterfall into the cave and a large beautiful turquoise blue pool.
We ascend back out of the waterfall and the other drop earlier in the trip via a wire ladder, belayed from the top by rope. Making our way back though the pools and to where we started.
This trip requires some previous experience and a good level of fitness. A 2-hour training session is recommended prior to leaving for the trip. This trip usually takes a minimum of 6 hours. A wet suit is advised.
