Wadi Kid

Wadi Kid is a long dry river bed between Dahab and Sharm El Sheikh, which will take you all the way to St Catherine. It is best known for its palm trees, Sandstone Mountains and Bedouin settlement. Today, it is becoming increasingly known as one of the best sites for rock climbing. In addition to the sandstone, there are Granite Mountains here.
