Dip in an emerald green pool amidst limestone cliffs fringed with vegetation at Wadi Bani Khalid, a striking landscape cut into the Al Hajar mountains. Admire waterfalls pouring over boulders, explore caves with strange light, and snap photos of the green and red rocks--the result of copper oxide and iron ore. A scenic hike will take you to natural springs, through plantations and villages. A traditional Omani village en route has all the basic tourist facilities.
