Itinerary

Wadi Helo or ‘Sweet Wadi’ has been nominated for inclusion in the list of Unesco World Heritage sites. With a history going back thousands of years wadi Helo is one of the oldest continuously habited areas in the region. We believe this trek to be one of the most scenic in UAE.

Our trek starts near the entrance to the wadi. We begin with an uphill trek to view the first of the small watchtowers that guarded the verdant wadi below. Our path continues down into the wadi bed where we find numerous terraced fields with their stone retaining walls. Further on we reach the most impressive ruins at the centre of the ancient village. A pre-Islamic tomb, watchtower, graveyards, mosque, wells and many small houses can be found on either side of the natural water course. The most impressive of all is the house of Eissa Al Thabbahi, built around 1900, it contains many rooms and a staircase that led up to a tower. Remnants of intricate plasterwork can still be seen on the walls of this important site.

We continue our trek up to our next watchtower to the west of the wadi. Once at the top you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and farms and down to the old village below. A second small watchtower can be reached by following a ridgeline before the descent back to the wadi below.
Difficulty 2 - Beginner/Moderate
