DAY 1


      Transfer Muttrah - Tiwi


      Hike from Wadi Tiwi to Al Ghomb

We start in a beautiful village far inside Wadi tiwi. Even the access road is worth a drive... We walk up to the plateau sirting around the cliffs above us. The views over the valley are superb. We reach the dry plateau and keep on walking to reach the upper Wadi Shab in the villge of Al Ghomb, a wonderful green oasis in the middle of this stony plateau.

- Level 4    
- Approximative length : 7 heures
- Elevation gain/loss : +800m/-400m
- Walking time : 5 a 6 heures

      Camping on the Plateau

We set up our camp on the plateau, and spend a fresh night under the stars...

Individual camping tent



DAY 2


      Hike from Al Ghomb to Wadi Shab

Today we hike to the sea through Wadi Shab. There is 2 ways and we take the one of the donkeys, since the other one is breathtakingly steep and exposed. We walk down to Wadi Shab with great views over the valle and its impressive cliffs and palm gardens, as well as over the sea. When we reach the bottom of the wadi, we stop for a swim : the swim is very rewarding after the hike, and another surprise is waiting ofr us here... but we can reach it only swimming... From here we only have half an hour more to reach the sea.

- Level 4    
- Approximative length : 7 heures
- Elevation gain/loss : +200m/-1000m
- Walking time : 5 a 6 heures

      Transfer Tiwi - Muttrah
