This fine gorge accessed from the south-east of the Eastern Hajar contains some beautiful pools in deep clefts some way downstream from Miqil.
A lovely hour’s walk or so each way on a faljl through the villages plantations and then into the interesting gorge, with sloping limestone pavements, vast cliffs and a gentle atmosphere. Some great swimming pools.
