Why we like it ...

When the Indian sub-continent collided with the southern side of Arabia while it was drifting toward Asia, the Eastern Hajar mountains were violently pushed up from under the sea to nearly 5000 feet above sea level. During this process, and through erosion of the rocks, one of the region’s largest caving systems was formed creating multiple passages and channels inside the Salmah mountain. This is how the Tahery Cave was born. Enjoy a beautiful hike along trails and canyons and end up at a cave so big it has to be seen to be believed. Explore the cave and then return along the same trail for a scenic grill out in the mountains, Arabian style.


Technical Details

Expect to leave Muscat around 6 AM to avoid hottest part of day. Hike should take 3+/- hrs in each direction with an hour and a half to explore the cave and eat lunch in it. Expect an 8-9PM return depending on hiking time and how much you enjoy your hamburgers relaxing on carpets under an incredibly starry sky.
