  • During the tour we visited this natural well wide 40 meters deep and 20 meters, which geologists say was formed when a limestone cave collapsed. The locals think instead that a piece of the Moon fell from the heavens and formed the cave called "Bait al Afreet" or House of the devil. It deserves because the water is crystal clear and a beautiful color and reaches the basin through a staircase leading down. It is possible to swim, putting your feet in the water you can get a massage with fish because there are many children who come to eat the dead skin of our body. funny ... Suitable for an outdoor picnic.

  • 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
