My dream finally came true. I did it!!!! Impressive place to visit. Be ready to walk fast and far. The guide rushed us up. Wish to have at list 45 min. inside the cave instead of 30min. The visitors centre has an exhibition upstairs with interesting and educational staff about the cave. Highly recommend!!!
Good place to visit, but not the best cave out there so set your expectations properly. Well organized and developed inside. Takes about one hour and half including everything from arrival, short train ride to the cave, walk around the cave, return train ride, and departure. There's guide in the cave.
Guided tour for 7 Omani rial that is not at your own pace. The cave is large and beautiful but they rush you through. You are in and out in half an hour. I could spend much much more time in there looking at the natural beauty. In short, expensive and fast.
It's a excellent historic discovery within the deserts of Oman. Although it seems the place is in the middle of nowhere, the cave itself is beautiful, with gushes of cool breeze to beat the heat of the summer. Perhaps the most fascinating find is the blind fish! Photography isn't allowed, and it's a bit of a walk to complete one round.
Definitely a place worth a visit, wear comfortable clothing and shoes, a little hot in the caves, but not uncomfortable, there are quite a lot of stairs so not for old and people, with arthritis and 27+ weeks of pregnancy, the tour is quite a workout! Don't bother with recording and video gear, photography isn't allowed in the cave! Closes at 5:30, I'd suggest afternoon timings after 1:30. There is a museum there just to summarize the cave and it's history, that people should visit, since the tours are quick.
