- Starting point for the walk: Parking area at the end of the dirt road (1).
- Follow the ‡Green‡ markers down the Wadi. In the begining the Wadi is wide, but after a few hundred meters the walls start closing and we enter the canyon on a naturual rock slide with handles. (2)
- Over the next 500 m we pass a series of small dry waterfalls and sharp turns as the canyon becomes narrower reaching a width of less then 2 meters. The colors are a mix of Red, Brown and Yellow. A real naturural jem!!
- We reach a juncion a with a ‡Black‡ marked trail. (3)
- For the short version turn right on the ‡Black‡ markers to return to the starting point.
- Continue following the ‡Green‡ markers for about 1.5 km down the wide Wadi until a junction with another ‡Black‡ marked trail. (4)
- Turn right and climb gently up the wadi on the ‡Black‡ marked wadi, until the way is blocked by a tall dry waterfall.
- The trial now climbs steeply on the left (East) bank to the head of the waterfall (5).
- This is a great resting spot with with good views.
