CHECK MY BLOG POST BY FOLLOWING THE LINK BELLOW (view more)- it has all you need to know info about this hike with many pictures to get you hooked.

Showka dam to Showka pools hike is an easy yet very picturesque hike starting at the newly built staircases behind Showka Dam parking lot. Reach the top of the mountain use the staircase and then go down the hills until you reach the beautiful valley and Showka wadi, finishing with Shawka pools. Climbing staircases is a good immediate leg workout with breathtaking views of a moon-like landscape. Later on hike becomes an easy walk through many clear mountain paths. We did a little detour and didnt follow any paths while descending the first mountain on scree slope (yet there was some sort of a donkey path to find an easy way down). Then again following mountain trails towards Showka Wadi. There is a meeting spot (some sort of a building) just before the right turn into another wadi that leads you to the pools. Shawka pools offers a cold 2meters dip. On the way back you can either choose exactly the same path, or follow the wadi (four wheel cars are using that too as there is a wide road) and later on get back on the smaller trails that curve around the mountains. Choosing lower trail that goes around the highest peak of the hike will take you back to the middle part of the staircases from the left side of the mountain.
