About the Hike:

Overall, this hike is not technical and is suitable for beginners with good fitness levels and general comfort in the outdoors. However, we will be descending through a steep, scree slope so hiking shoes are recommended for maximum safety and comfort. Please contact us for hiking shoes recommendations.

We will start off by following the wadi up a gorge leading to a low peak with beautiful, panoramic views. After coming down a steep, scree slope on the other side, we will loop back through the wadi where multiple little pools will await us. If you are uncomfortable in water, there are alternative trails that can be taken to avoid the deeper pools. However, we strongly urge you to Grasp the Canyoning with us as we dive into the cold, fresh water pools.


4 Wheel Drives are NOT needed to get to the meeting point; however they are required to get to the trail starting point. If you do not have a 4 wheel drive, we will carpool from the meeting point to the trail start while adhering to all Covid-19 Regulations. If you do not have a way to get to the meeting point either, please contact us and we are happy to help arrange a carpool for you.
