Wadi An Nakhr Oman


Where is Wadi An Nakhr Located?


“Wadi An Nakhr” is located only 2 hours drive away from the capital Muscat, this impressive 600km stretch of mountains is home to some exciting activities like walking in the Snake Gorge, trekking in the wadis or climbing up to the highest peak only to be greeted by the most beautiful canyon in the Arabian Gulf region.

This wadi is also known as the Grand Canyon of the Middle East. The wadi contains a village that bears its name and which can be seen from the top of Jabal Shams (Sun Mountain). You can also enjoy with picturesque waterfalls cascading from Jabal Shams from this valley.


In your way, you’ll notice the special outline of Jebel Misht standing in proud isolation away to the west. The final few kilometers are particularly spectacular, with grand views down into the great hole of “Wadi An Nakhr”.


What is the reason behind its so-called name?


Its name is derived from the local word (Nakhr), which means the process of rock carving, "erosion", as the waters of this valley formed during the ancient times, formations of mountain layers that a visitor can view up close.



Hiking activities in Wadi An Nakhr Oman


If you start your trek from Al Ghub to “Wadi An Nakhr”, you have to go to the village Al Khatim down to the entrance of the wadi. Be warned because the ground is made a sharp rock and you go from 700 meters to 2000 meters.


Then you have to climb up the mountain, to reach a fabulous point of view over the “Nakhr gorge”, also called as “Grand Canyon” of Oman.
