Wadi Tayyibah is the annual watercourse, or wadi, in the Hajar mountains of Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. It leaves the Tayyibah valley and joins the Taih Dibba or Dibba Plain, where it exits the plain. Prior to 1960, Wadi Tayyibah provided a major route from Masafi to Dibba and parts of the tarmac are still visible, especially in the lower reaches of the river as it approaches the village of Al Hala.
The valley was replaced by the main road to Dibba when the Truck Oman Scouts built a new highway in 1960, pulling through the mountains.  The road was controversial in the area as it deprived the people of Tayyibah of their income from passing cars and clashes broke out between Sharqiyin residents in Tayyibah and members of the Mazari tribe from nearby Wadi Asimah community, and Tayyibah men attacked new road workers. The wadi has traditionally been the site of great agricultural development, providing men employed locally at certain times of the year. It is often noted for its palm trees. It is a popular tourist destination, with many hiking trails. During its settlement as agriculture, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Tayyibah farms would supply certain local men at certain times of the year. Today Wadi Tayyibah is a popular tourist destination and hiking trail, with many trails marked throughout the area.
The village is located at the head of Wadi Tayyibah, which provided the main link between the interior and Dibba on the East Coast  before the stylish road between Masafi and Dibba was built by Trucial Oman Scouts in 1960, using dynamite. A number of petroglyphs have been found in the area. Fighting broke out between Sharqiyin residents in Tayyibah and members of the Mazari tribe from the nearby Wadi Asimah community in May 1959, a dispute that led to the then Governor of Fujairah, Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi, to pay compensation, or Muatasham, 400 Rupees to Kha Alusi, Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, as he violated the wai (defense or defense) agreed upon between them – and fined 14,000 Rupees for damages caused by the tribes.
The conflict, which resulted in the death of an Asimah man and ended with the armed intervention of the Truck Oman Scouts, erupted and in 1961 led to the attack on workers in the Truck Oman Scouts’ Masafi / Dibba road project by Tayyibah men. During its settlement as agriculture, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Tayyibah farms would supply certain local men at certain times of the year.
Today Tayyibah is a popular tourist destination and hiking trail, with many trails marked throughout the area. The area is rich in agriculture and is known for its palm groves. With about 75 families popping up in Tayyibah in 2009, many housing programs have greatly expanded the area in recent years with modern housing improving the city away from its public housing and its community.
A less researched yet excellent place to climb. Wadi Tayyibah can be obtained by 4×4 driving for about 20 kilometers per wadi, or by hiking in the mountains. There is a simple trace marked starting from the Heritage Museum. You can follow the signs. We did not follow them as they were. We have examined from time to time our choice of descents and descents. I ended up in this amazing mountain, taking awesome videos of this Mars-like world. He then descended to the other side, followed the valley, and discovered an unusual rock formation with small ponds. Basically, you can make your own way if you wish. The heights of those hills are not very high but they can get good depending on where you choose to go. Some experience rock climbing is a must. If you are a newcomer, stick to the marked route as our route is for those who are confident about the UAE terrain. There are no extra drops, just some loose rocks and lots of grass and thorn bushes (wear long pants).
2- Serene Walk-in Greenery
Are you ready to enter a mythical world? Wadi Tayyibah – where the hills are covered with green grass, the birds guide you along a path through the green gardens with their careless trill and the warm rays of the sun descending into the valley to warm you on that cool night. You can’t believe you’re in the United Arab Emirates!
3- Green Landscape
I probably did not know anything about the Fujairah mountains. I have visited many places in the region but none have taken my heart away. Don’t get me wrong – I love the clear nature of the United Arab Emirates! But for some reason, I was always focused on finding places on the highest peaks of the Hajar mountains. That day when I visited Wadi Tayyibah I changed my mind unexpectedly and I think you can guess why – look at the pictures!
4- Housing Disasters On Mountains
The village of Wadi Tayyibah begins around the village of Al Uyaynah (25.451111, 56.165750) and ends around the village of Asimah (25.416444, 56.167028). It is a great place for road trips, camping, cycling, and hiking. The road that crosses the valley is mainly a paved road, however, you can sometimes see the red tarmac left, as a result of which it is destroyed by rainwater, which was the main road between Dibba and Masafi years ago, known as East Coast Road. This route is still used, especially by locals to reach their farms.
Along the way, you can see the ancient ‘falaj’ (a traditional system of small, muddy ditches used to irrigate fields), green palm gardens, and other planted trees. There is a lot of history here – if you decide to climb to the top of the hills you should not expect the unexpected ruins of old houses and farms that have been around for almost a hundred years.
