Three New Caves Discovered in Oman

A group of cave explorers in coordination with the Speleological Team of Oman have explored a number of new caves in the vicinity of the village of Gail Al Hareem in the Wilayat of Dama Wa Altayyin.

The efforts resulted in the discovery and partial surveying of three new caves, named Al Khishil Cave, Al Naqqah Cave and Al Faqa'a, all of which are local names used by the neighboring villagers on these deep mountain vents that were apparently never abseiled before.

The Al Khishil Cave is one of the deepest caves in Oman, expected to be more than 400 m below the surface, the cave contains clear water ponds.
