Snake Gorge, also called Wadi Bimah, is a gorge or wadi in the Ad Dakhiliyah Region of Oman. It is popular with hikers. It is a fantastic route for jumping off small cliffs into water pools. There are also natural waterslides. However, it is flashflood prone, and in the 1996 a small group of hikers drowned. In 2014 tourists from Dubai were trapped during rains surviving the nightmare on the rocks. Neglecting the bad weather forecast (events: rain, thunderstorm) they set out on Friday 4 April to the Snake Gorge and already after 40 minutes it began to rain flooding the area. The water kept rising while the tourists climbed on a rock being forced to stay there overnight facing the cold weather. Luckily, the water didn't reach where they were. At around 6 a.m.
