- The final of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2012 takes place in Oman on September 27…For its grand finale, the 2012 World Series touches down on Arabian sands for the very first time. The Sultanate of Oman hosts the season showdown in the Wadi Shab, with the canyon-like valley providing a spectacular backdrop for the crowning of the 2012 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Champion. Who, if anyone, will be able to topple two-time champion Gary Hunt?! Palm and date trees line the narrow, winding and old rock paths, with a series of streams, aquamarine pools and waterfalls. Wadi Shab lies in Niyabat Tiwi, a village between the capital, Muscat, and the town of Sur. Accessible from the Qurayyat-Sur highway, Wadi Shab contains seven pools of spectacular emerald-green water.
