WHAT IS IT

Wadi
Tayyb-Esm

Imagine clear, clean water flowing freely, winding and cascading through an ancient mountain range, where spires of sedimentary rock stand 400 meters tall. This is the wadi, the dramatic and beautiful spring-fed canyon that weaves its way through towers of granite, sandstone and basalt, to plunge into the Gulf of Aqaba.

Formed over millions of years, the wadi is rich in archaeological history and religious significance. In a place of such spectacular beauty, It is easy to see how some people believe this is a likely candidate site for the Valley of Lemuel, or the possible location where the Prophet Moses, peace be upon him, brought his people out of Egypt.

What to do

Wadi Tayyb-Esm

The cooler temperatures and breathtaking views make this an ideal location for hiking, swimming, snorkelling and wildlife-spotting.

One of the very few locations in the NEOM region with permanently flowing water, the wadi is a sanctuary for biodiversity. Observant visitors may spot reptiles, birds, and amphibians such as the Arabian skittering frog.

In order to protect the wide range of vegetation and fauna diversity, vehicle access is prohibited, but access on foot remains unrestricted. Please note that caution should be taken whilst visiting the wadi during or soon after the seasonal winter rainfall, since the water flow in the wadi can increase drastically. Take care if you choose to swim as the area is unpatrolled and there are very strong currents.
