7th Hole - Oman - (Caving)
This is the ultimate challenge and the most adventurous trip in the husaak adventures portfolio. The trip takes you beyond normal human limits, into the heart of the earth. This cave has been untouched for millions of years, until climbing gear technology allowed humans to be able to go into it. Only a few hundred people have ever gone through this cave in the entire time it’s existed on this planet. The 7th hole trip will take you about 400 feet under the surface, into one of the world’s largest chambers. The sights are amazing and the skills to be learned on this trip are even more amazing.
The trip starts on Thursday, early morning to the top of the Salmah Plateau where you’ll get a full day of training on using the caving equipment. At sun down, the team will have dinner, chill for the rest of the evening and prepare for the day ahead.
On Friday morning, the team will start the decent down the cave through the first drop of about 100 ft and then another drop of roughly 200 ft. Then through small ups and downs to get to the main chamber, where we’ll rest and have lunch. The team will spend the rest of the afternoon climbing back to the surface.
The team will head down the mountain to a Wadi where they will spend the rest of the night chilling and enjoying a well earned steak dinner. On Saturday the team will head back The expected time of arrival to Muscat is around 12 PM.
