  • Very unique and different place to visit and explore. You can easily spend a hour in exploring the cave, tunnel train ride walk in to the cave. Guides are explain the history of the cave, growth. How much ever hot outside the weather so cold inside the cave. Blind fish is something unique which never seen anywhere. Small cafe available for quick snacks.
  • Must visit, if you are in Oman. Awesome place... We need to walk and climb stairs for about 2hrs to explore a little part of the cave... The rest is for adventure rides... Enjoy hiking ! Kids will also enjoy this place... Train ride is so cool...
