  • 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..
  • 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
  • Great sights and pleasant atmosphere. Could do with less litter.
  • 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.
  • Amazing - must see this place
