Wadi Shah beginner


Wadi Shah is a popular albeit strenuous hike that presents unique hiking challenges. Therefore, before we’ll take anyone on the Wadi Shah full loop, you must have hiked with us before or hiked the half loop.

The initial ascent of this hike requires scrambling and climbing over sizable boulders as we move up the wadi. There are several areas that are challenging to navigate. As we depart from the wadi and head up to the farm terrace, the trek becomes a series of switch backs on steep scree slopes. We’ll stop midway at the remains of a farm terrace before returning back to the trailhead. Limit: 12 people
