From the swimming ponds in Wadi Bani Khalid, you can also take a walk through the beautiful gorge to other bathing sites and explore the bat cave at the same time.

The beginning of the gorge

The beginning of this short tour begins at the last of the larger swimming ponds. It only leads for a while so relatively high above the bottom of the gorge. For the rest of the journey, then to the bottom

Vegetation in the gorge

Here, too, the old rule applies, where water is there is life. It blooms beautifully in the gorge

March through the gorge

The march through the gorge is pleasant – the path is quite obvious. In several places it is necessary to cross the local river. In most cases, you can always jump over rocks.

Stairs to the cave

Less than half an hour's walk away, you are at the stairs to a cave that is freely accessible

Entrance to the cave

A tour of this cave is definitely not for claustrophobics + you definitely need a flashlight.

The cave is terribly hot and humid and is full of feces from bats

Outlook for the continuation of the gorge

The entrance to the cave is about 10 meters above the ground, so it is also a pretty good view of the continuation of the gorge

Passage through the gorge

You can go even further through the gorge, but the process is very slow – constantly climbing boulders. We preferred to turn it around after a few minutes and went for a bath

Bathing pond

The places in the gorge are usually without people a little longer than in the main place at the restaurant

Here, too, you can indulge in a fish pedicure thanks to the Garra rufa (Red-brown Gara) fish.
