Wadi Bani Khalid a popular destination during holidays

Muscat: A total of 10,590 people visited the popular tourist destination of Wadi Bani Khalid during the recent Eid al Adha holidays.

Located 203km from Muscat,  at Wadi Bani Khalid, tourists enjoy the spectacular views of the fertile valley with its spreading trees and abundant water that tumbles down as waterfalls in some areas to form natural pools of water.

The road then cuts through the valley to reach Muqal town, well known for its cave. To explore this cave, you’ll have to exercise great caution as you may need to crawl or even scramble in some places. Here the gushing waters creates a loud rushing sound and collects in pools, only to dissipate and gather – once again – in small lakes which the villagers have used to fill three irrigation canals.
