Never venture alone to a desert or Wadi

Recommended Posts

A sincere request to not venture out to the desert or Wadi alone. Also a word of caution to anybody heading towards the wadis during the rain, it is very unsafe due to the threat of flash floods.

I've been been beating this drum of avoid going to wadis during heavy rainfall literally for decades now. Even since I lost friends in college in Hatta due to flash floods

Very sad to see. This has been mentioned time and time again but unfortunately still these things seem to happen.

Was one of them Shan? I remember my brother being very upset. Shan was a good swimmer and saved himself, but went back to save one of his friend and was able the save her, but drowned himself. His body was found later on the shores of Oman. It was a very sad day indeed.

Yes Shan was one of them and that's exactly how it happened. I attended his and his cousins funeral here in Dubai. Two other friends also were lost that day

That is a sad story. I am sorry for everyone involved. We like to think of ourselves and having fun but we hall have friends, we all have family, and that’s what we should be thinking of.
