Scenic and desolate – Wadi Ash Shuwaymiyah, Oman

Wadi Ash Shuwaymiyah in Oman is an amazing wadi for adventure-seeking travellers who want to test their off-road and navigating skills.

Pros: fantastic off-roading, amazing scenery, roaming camels

Cons: 4×4 driving can be challenging and the path hard to follow – most likely destroyed by flashfloods; lastly, you probably need a full day to properly explore the wadi

We visited the place on the way to Salalah from Muscat in November 2020. Here are directions we followed in the wadi.
