Trip to Wadi Hibi is about half an hour drive from Sohar. Driving from Globe round about in a direction left while coming from Muscat, the drive test centre and Galfar training camp are en route lined on both sides by date palms. As the rows of trees ends, the drive to wadi hibi starts. Steep slopes and inclines form part of the terrain alongwith some steep curves. Barren rocky hillocks line up both sides and there is inhabited area in between before we reach the wadi just before Wadi hibi. The nature has been remodelled in the last one year (that was the last we had been there). We walked into the shallow stream which hardly flowed. A few tadpoles and fishes occasionally stirred the otherwise stationery water.
