I finally got here to Oman :). Tomorrow me and my girlfriend are planning to go to Ras Al-Hadd via Wadi Shab. We are planning to leave around 5am in order to climb up the Wadi when it's not so warm. I heard there is a new double-lane road there, I saw it on google maps. But how to get to the pools where one can swim? Are they far away from the double-lane road?
Once at the pools is there any way of securing our things before getting in the water? Any places that might deposit our things?
On our way back from Ras Al-hadd on the next day we want to pay a short visit to the desert (Just 15-20 minutes just to have a look from the road, maybe take some pictures. We dont have a 4x4). Where would be the most convenient place?
Thanks for your answers :)
