Wadi Dayqah Dam, Muscat Governorate

#6 of 19 in Parks in Muscat Governorate
Nature and man-made infrastructure harmoniously coexist at Wadi Dayqah Dam, which provides much of the region's drinking water. Completed in 2012, the dam collects vast amounts of the mountain rainfall, controlling the flow of water to the distant villages below. Take a picnic and sit in the lush parkland by the 8 km (5 mi) reservoir, which boasts a capacity of 100 million cu m (3.5 billion cu ft) of fresh rainwater. Drive to the 75 m (246 ft) heights of the dam for a scenic view of the surrounding amber limestone mountains and valleys.

  • A very beautiful picnic spot. Has an attached garden and is also very scenic. Easily accessible and just an hour and a half away from Muscat. Make sure to visit during the winters. Family friendly.
  • Really enjoyable place to visit. We took a picnic and ate in the gardens. Impressive scenery and really friendly staff in the visitor centre.
