Welcome to Wadi Tiwi
With its string of emerald pools and thick plantations, Wadi Tiwi almost rivals Wadi Shab in beauty, especially in the spring when the allotments turn a vivid green. Known as the ‘Wadi of Nine Villages’, there are excellent walking opportunities through the small villages that line the road. For the more ambitious hiker, there is a strenuous but rewarding two-day hike that begins at Sooee, the last of the nine settlements. Indeed, the route over the mountain to Wadi Bani Khalid has become a popular camping excursion with walking groups.
Wadi Tiwi can be accessed by car, but villagers prefer visitors to approach on foot. The road is narrow and steep in parts towards the upper reaches and it is easy to get a large vehicle stuck between the plantation walls.
