11 sights in the Arabian Peninsula's hidden gem

Easyvoyage Logo By Masa Petranovic of Easyvoyage | Slide 1 of 11: Known by locals as Hawaiyat Najm, meaning Meteor Fall, this natural phenomenon can be found near the capital city of Muscat. Legend has it that the sinkhole was created by a meteorite, and some of the local Omanis still believe it! Although scientists have discovered the true origin story for the sinkhole, the name stayed. The hole is more than 20 meters deep and filled with beautiful turquoise water surrounded by rocks. In the center of a vast, dry area, this place stands out as a truly breathtaking oasis. Most visitors come here just to marvel the unique formation, but taking a swim here is also an incredible experience!
