Showka Dam Loop
The Showka Dam loop offers the perfect beginner hike! It’s got distance, a loop, and minimal elevation gain. From the trailhead you are immediately engulfed in the rocky foothills of the Hajar mountains. We will follow the trail around a mountain ridge, over some scree (loose rocks) paths, through different wadis, and past an abandon farm. Along the way you may spot goats, camels or the occasional donkey. Limit: 24 people
