 Canyoning Adventure in Oman Minimize
snake gorge1 snake gorge2 snake gorge3

Canyoning will usually include some abseiling, scrambling over and around rocks. Some of the wadis might even have pools you have to wade or swim through. There are small 20 mtr drops to long hundred metre multi - pitch drops or you could even free abseil into the Majlis Al Jinn Cave.

The Snake Gorge walk actually entails three kilometres of walking, wading through pools, swimming, and scrambling over boulders in the gorge between two cliffs, to eventually come out at Al-Zamman. Several pools and small waterfalls are crossed during the walk, including one pool that flows into a pitch-black 30-metre-long cave. The only light in this cave is that coming from the mouth of the cave. Indeed, the whole journey is both a physical and a mental challenge and thus, should not be taken lightly. It's like a roller coaster ride, or like white water rafting — without the raft. One will never know what to expect. Once the walk is completed, one feels a sense of achievement. Physical fitness does not have to be a prerequisite for crossing the gorge.
