This is a very nice cave in Oman. Definitely not the most impressive I have seen, but worth 1-2 hours of your time. Also, the road into the visiting center is very unusual. I would just outline the quite expensive price.

Well worth a look if you are in the area but perhaps not interesting enough to drive from Muscat for, walk around the cave takes around 45 minutes with an english - arabic speaking guide.

Yes, we saw other couples with babies leaving the stroller at the entrance and carrying the baby. It's just about 40 minutes inside the caves, after that stroller again :)
