Alhoota cave, rich in stalactites and stalagmites, has long been a popular tourist attraction. There is a geological museum on site with interactive exhibitions that tell about the geological features of the cave and the achievements of Omani geologists and speleologists. There is also a souvenir shop, and a nice restaurant, and a café with a summer open air area and beautiful views of the mountains. On the train you will go directly to the cave itself, and during a 40-minute walk you will pass along the shore of an underground lake, where blind caveman fish are found. One excursion is conducted in the morning, the other – in the evening, 45 minutes before the closure of the cave. If you turn left immediately after leaving the cave complex, then along the road (somewhere in two kilometers) you will see a small park and a lake with blossoming water. On the shore of this lake you can spend your time enjoying a picnic.
Excursion must necessarily be ordered in advance, as there is a limit on the number of visitors. The cave can get no more than 750 people a day. In addition, it is often closed and without prior booking, you can simply face the closed gates, especially after the rains, when part of the dungeons are submerged. You can not take a camera with you to the cave, you’ll have to leave it in the safe at the entrance.
