One of the most beautiful attractions to visit in this country is the
Ain Al Heet underground cave in Al Kharj located in the Central
part of Saudi Arabia.

Ain Al Heet Underground Cave

One of the most beautiful place I have visited is the underground cave in Al Kharj Saudi Arabia, approximately 50 kms south of Riyadh. Since I am working in an airbase in Al Kharj, I have the opportunity to experience this once in a lifetime adventure. The area is surrounded by desert, with a lush of some trees and few vegetation. On the way to this underground cave, one can feel the history of this ancient place. The thousand of years that evolved that transformed this beautiful place. As I view it, I can't help but think of the past. How this place came to be and the people that has passed this way. It feels like travelling back in another dimension and time.

Swimming Underground

My friends took time to swim in Al Heet underneath the cave. The blue crystal clear water is so enchanting to see. If ever there is someone who is interested to experience a place like these, surely the Ain Al Heet cave is one the most exhilarating sites to visit.

We took time to have our photos taken for souvenir. There is a feel of calmness and serenity as you take a walk by the huge rocks surrounding the area. The place will always leave a special memory in our hearts as we journey through our life here in Saudi Arabia.
