   ITINERARY

Leave Muscat at 6am or meet Hoti Car Park 8.30am

A drive 2 ½ hours from Muscat near to the town of Al Hamra.

In the Wadi close to the small village of Hoti is Hoti Sink. This is a real introduction into caving with fantastic calcite features to be seen on route.

We descend 10m down by rope from Hoti Sink into the main chamber. For around 2 hours with head torches we work our way through the cave, scrambling over boulders and under low roofs. The humidity in the cave increases dramatically the deeper inside we go.

We don’t go near any water so to protect the habitat of the blind cave fish that live in the pools in the cave.

We ascend out of the cave up the 10-meter pitch we descended at the start, via wire Caving ladders, protected by a belay from the top.

It can get muddy inside so old cloths recommended!
