The hidden oasis is an explorer’s dream.

This unexpected mountain oasis sits at an elevation of ca 1000 meters, and it's truly is worth your while to hike there. It offers stunning views of the Hajar range, Jebel Jais and surrounding wadis.

The scenes are incredibly green during the winters, after the rains.


The trail starts at the Jebel Jais road with two possibilities:

Straight to the Oasis

Goes up on some vertical stairs, green plantations, rocky balconies edges, passing by bushy patches of vegetation, rocky terrain and plantations. Once you reach the oasis, you have the chance to continue the steps up to a mountain village, which offers incredible views to the Hidden Oasis. The way down is on the same path.

Wadi Shah loop

A longer and more intense hike starts from wadi Shah (bear grills camp) with a perfect loop, starting first into a canyon, then up towards the mountain village that overlooks the hidden oasis. From there the hike walks down towards and throguh the hidden oasis, then back onto some stairs and rocy balcony hedges that lead back to the car.
