  • this cave first discovered by local people, it is a 5km long inside, you will take a train to go inside in your ride you will watch natural views you can take pictures as much as you can after that...  more »
  • While Oman is beautiful AL Hoota cave is dissapointed me and was a complete time and money wasting to visit. There is nothing special in this cave and if you visited a good cave before then you will.....  more »
  • 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.
