The geysers' intensity depends on the season and in late Decemver they are not really impressive, but the place worths in any case a visit. The cliff on the sea are a really nice view, especially at the sunset, when we went. There were fishermen and seagulls flying all around. Recommended.

the views around there are beautiful and it is nice to go somewhere without the mass tourism. Not much information about the area and caves though.

After traveling in the hills and beaches on Indian ocean side we traveled our way to the tomb. It was at the top of the hill. The area was filled with nice trees and herd of camels greeted our team as we arrived.

Loved the natural geysers and the walk around the cave. The way towards the place is also very romantic and worth a lot of stops. Camel spotting is definite.

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.
