Located in the vicinity of Mount Al Jubayl, Heet Cave is a natural formation with a small lake inside it. The lake within this cake is famed for its dark green colour which is due to several natural minerals inside it like limestone or anhydrite. The cave has become one of the famous attractions due to its photogenic structure and the beautiful backdrop of Wadi Al Sulay valley.
Heet Cave is a limestone cave in Saudi Arabia which was only discovered by accident around 130 years ago. It has since become a popular tourist place in Saudi Arabia for adventure seekers to visit and explore. You will witness that the cave is home to unique animal species that thrive at the place at night.
You will get a chance to witness blind fishes here which move around by touch and are completely deaf. Another interesting fact about this Cave is that it was used as a shelter during some wars.
As the sun sets the temperature of Heet Cave falls rapidly as the only source of natural light dwindles away. To help maintain some level of sunlight, guides tend to set up torches along some walls during dusk. The temperature also tends to fluctuate depending on the season.
