The name of this village roughly translates as ‘Banana Pool’ – a suitable name, as a quick drive through the village plantation will reveal. Although there is a fort, Bait Al Radidah (renovated but as yet closed to visitors) with Falaj Al Hathmeen running through its ramparts, and some interesting old buildings, most people only venture into Birkat Al Mawz to begin the 4WD drive (or strenuous day hike) up Wadi Muaydin to the Saiq Plateau on Jebel Akhdar.
