Wadi Bani Hauf

Petit Futé's opinion on SNAKE CANYON

Vintage plate 2020

Snake Canyon is a deep and narrow canyon located within the Wadi Bani Hauf in the southwest of Batinah. It probably owes its name to its sinuous, snake-like outline, but some believe it is due to the actual presence of snakes in the canyon. In fact, it is not uncommon to come across small but potentially poisonous reptiles in the wadis of the Sultanate. Do not confuse Snake Canyon with Little Snake Canyon, another canyon located about ten kilometers from Bimah in the direction of Al Awabi. Snake Canyon is famous for its spectacular scenery: its dizzying cliffs, its surprisingly narrow paths and its pools, more or less blue and filled according to the seasons. It is an incredible playground for any trekking or canyoning enthusiast. Although impressive, this canyon does not present any technical difficulties and descends its entire length in 3 or 4 hours. In some places it is so narrow that you can touch both walls at the same time! Two abseils of about 20 meters each are to be done in the top of the canyon before jumping, walking and swimming. Of course, never go into the canyon on a rainy or stormy day and make sure that the guide you leave with has all the necessary insurance. In the villages of the area, many young people offer their services, with an exhaustive knowledge of the place, but without the appropriate technical training and insurance in case of trouble.
