Wadi Bani Khalid is one of the most famous wadis in Al Sharqiyah Region in Oman. It has been a well known wadi for a number of years and popular with both adventure seekers and families wanting to have a bit of a picnic. Wadi Bani Khalid is the name of the wadi going through an extensive region including two or three towns, and that is the reason there is a touch of disarray of where the wadi really is. The famous large swimming pool, picnic areas and a small cave network will attracts more tourists to Wadi Bani Khalid.
