They have 2 big caves, first > 200m deep and a second one 800m, worth to visit. On the way you will find plently of Camels / cows / goats :)

Most of the Dhofer mountains we drove through we saw many cave like openings every now and then in almost all of them. This particular cave is pretty deep yet with small opening. Interesting place to see.

The cave itself is not a big deal, but the surrounding area, and the blow hole are awesome and not to be missed during a trip to Salalah, the scenes and the natural views are priceless.

It would be helpful for people who don't know where these attractions are, to have a map attached so that they could find it.

The sights are splendid, bit not much else here. It's on a scenic route, and little else to do in Salalah, so you may as well see it. The blow holes are seasonal. Take a picnic and enjoy the solitude and awesome sights.

This is one of the must go to places if you're visiting Salalah. It's so beautiful during the rainy season, with the sea on one side and lush green mountains on the other, with a touch of fog amidst a dark sky. Difficult to comment on whether it'll be as good on a sunny day..
