  • Awesome place , Nature's beauty. Not that famous place. Good place to take a refreshing bath or swim Beware of scorpions at this place, they exists more in numbers in this place  more »
  • Whether it's a crater left by a meteorite, a natural soil subsidence or, as locals, of the House of the devil, this sinkhole is truly spectacular. The color of the water is amazing, it is possible to swim down a steep staircase. Unfortunately in some periods it is stormed by tourists, that they remove that aura of magic and mystery that deserves, and being quite small rocks you may not appreciate properly the place. In the parking lot will be funny goats who just waiting for food and are completely harmless.

  • One of the most beautiful things we saw in Oman. Comparable to Wadi Bani Malik for beauty and Majesty, it seems to be in Mexico in a cenote. Clear and warm water that invites you to a relaxing bath. If not then there are so many people the atmosphere is even more relaxing. Not to be missed.

  • This is a great day trip from Muscat. The area has very little around it but there are lovely picnic areas. The park has very little shade so keep that in mind when you are visiting.
  • Another magnificent geological feature of Oman. The sinkhole is formed by the caving in of limestone strata above .The water is clear bluish green. Can dip in and enjoy with family. The place is well kept with good resting posts.. Highly recommended to include in your travlel itinerary..
  • Nice place to stop by. Entrance is free and if you like you can swim too.
  • Good place to visit but take along foodstuffs if you are planning to stay longer
  • Located in Dabab village ,113 km away from Muscat. There are various stories behind the formation of the Sinkhole. Locals have a legendary story where by a meteorite fell in this location as its name indicates in Arabic " هوية نجم " translates into English to " The falling Star". Yet Upon scientific research conducted by experts and geologists confirmed that the crater was formed as a natural consequence of the interaction of dissolving limestone located at that location, which contain calcium carbonate with water, which resulted in the collapse of the earth's upper crust layer
