Are you seeking a refreshing trip? Or looking for a new place to visit with your partner? If you’re this or that, you should take a vacation and consider visiting the beautiful valley of Wadi Darbat on a full-day tour.
Start your day from Salalah city, located in Dhofar Province. Salalah is considered of the biggest cities in the Sultanate of Oman.
Wadi Darbat is located in Dhofar, about 55 KM from Salalah city. Start your day in this beautiful wadi with a trek to the mountains of Wadi Darbat, where you can hike the trails and see camels, cows, and other animals walking around. Also, you can find Caves replete with inscriptions and paintings at this spot.
Next, you’ll visit the famous Wadi Darbat waterfalls. You’ll see the seasonal 100-metered- waterfalls of wadi Darbat, which follow from the mountains up high down to the Arabian sea during autumn. Enjoy the beauty of nature as wadi Darbat is a picturesque valley. Photo lovers will find it a paradise for taking amazing shoots.
Our following site will be Tawi Atayr or, as it is known, the Well of birds. This spectacular sinkhole is one of the deepest natural sinkholes in the world, where you’ll see birds frequent almost all of the year, making it the reason for being called The Well of birds.
Before leaving Wadi Darbat, you will visit the biggest lake in Salalah, located at the end of Wadi Darbat; there, you can swim in its pure water.
After leaving Wadi Darbat, your next destination will be visiting Taqah. Taqah is a small village a few kilometers from wadi Darbat. You’ll see the old castle of Taqa, which was the home of Taqah’s governor or, as he was called (al Wali) in the past, and see the traditional old dhofari houses with their carved doors.
