Showka Gorge


We’ll begin this hike like most, trekking on a dry wadi bed. Within 15 minutes though, a beautiful pool of water will appear in front of us. The canyon is so narrow in this spot that we will have climb up and over a small ridge to get to the other side. For the next hour you will navigate your way through the different pools of water before we reach dry land. As the canyon opens up in front of us, we will continue our hike to a beautiful palm grove where we will stop for rest and snack before continuing back. Limit: 24 people
