Beautiful place, but crowded. The hike took us about 35 minutes one way. Don't do it on flip-flops, it's slippery at some stages. The swim was great, very refreshing! Did not go to waterfall.

Make sure you are in moderate physical fitness. You have to walk/climb over rocks. Take water proof coverings for phone/cameras.

After a 30 minute hick you reach the waters of Wadi Shab. In the beginning the water is shallow, but gets deeper the further you get into the valley. At the end there is a cave with a waterfall inside, is a must to visit....More
