Al Hoota Cave

OMAN'S most popular natural tourist destination, Al Hoota Cave, has reopened following the implementation of broad enhancements to the visitor experience at the attraction. 

The cave, located in the wilayat of Al Hamra, is believed to be over 2 million years old located in a mountain in the vicinity of the Tanuf Valley in Al Hamra district at the foothills of Central Al Hajar mountains The cave offers a fascinating insight into what lies beneath Oman's plateaus and peaks.

The cave features an electrical train that starts from the visitor centre reaching the mouth of the tunnel arriving to the cave's main entrance. Another feature of this amazing cave is the subterranean lake system which is home to unusual species of aquatic, pink-coloured blind fish which sense their way around the lake with feelers.

The enhanced Al Hoota experience will enable people to get the most from their visits and the ability to plan a visit online means people can book the elements of the visit they want, creating a bespoke experience. Opening times are Saturday-Thursday (Except Monday) from 9am-6pm and on Fridays from 9am-12pm and 2pm-5pm.
