TRIP DETAILS

Explore one of the local cave systems on this entry-level caving expedition, no previous experience required.
This is an awesome adventure into the pitch-black underground cave system

A short hike down the wadi and a 6m abseil later, we are at the bottom, standing next to a dark hole in the ground, natural entrance into the cave. A 10-meter roped abseil gets you down into total darkness, like very few other places on earth.
The cave offers us a fantastic natural section to explore. We start expedition through the cave's enormous chambers and narrow passages, scaling huge boulders finding and columns of calcite that dwarf the few spectators who come to visit. Learn about the geological history of Oman, how the caves formed and about the wildlife that manages to survive in the dark and humid chambers.

Our exit route is a caving ladder that we climb, connected to the belay system. Once that is out of the way, we will be out in the daylight in no time. We climb out of the wadi and head to the cars for a well-deserved lunch.
