Wadi Bani Awf Snake Canyon Oman

 

Wadi Bani Awf Snake Canyon Oman

 

“Wadi Bani Awf” is one of largest wadi in wilayat Al Rustaq in the South Batinah Governorate of Oman; it covers a large area with several villages worth visiting, including the famous “Snake Canyon”.
 
The “Snake Canyon” is a very narrow gorge in situated in the middle of “Wadi Bani Awf”. You can touch both sides of canyon at the same time; the upper part offers several jumps of 3/4 meters and 2 abseils of 20 meters, the climb takes around 4 hours. The ones who don't want to jump can always go down abseiling.
 
The wadi leads directly to the picturesque Snake Gorge, which gets its name from the colubrine effect created by the mountains that "snake" through it. The gorge contains waterfalls emerging from its rocky walls, plenty of natural pools, and gigantic boulders all around.
 
The route through “Wadi Bani Awuf” goes through beautiful scenery and connects all the way to Balad Sayat in Al Dakhiliya region by crossing the Hajar Mountains and offers some of the best off-road driving experience you can find in Oman.
 
The road is very steep, and it takes about 3 hours to cross this wadi. It goes along a 5 meter wide path that is more than 100 meters high in places. There are wires connecting both sides of the wadi, which the adventurous use to cross from one side to the other.
