The Cave of the Jinn and Legends a trip in the terrifying well of Barhout in Yemen

An exciting discovery for an Omani team

A scientific team from the Sultanate of Oman undertook an exciting experiment to explore a deep hole, or the so-called “Barhout Well”, in Al-Mahra Governorate, eastern Yemen.

The well, which is located at a depth of 112 meters, has been associated with “many legends that have spread in various media”, and some call it: “The Cave of the Jinn”.

In his account via Twitter, the Omani cave exploration team said: The alleged well is characterized by an opening whose width at the surface is 30 meters, and its width extends at the bottom to 116 meters, noting that the circumference of the hole is circular.

According to CNN in Arabic, the well is located between small plains and mountains made of limestone, and from within it “the water emerges from the sides of the hole to form beautiful waterfalls, and these waterfalls vary in the abundance and continuity of water flowing from them.”

In a tweet for the team on Twitter, he said: “At a depth of approximately 65 meters from the surface, water emerges from the sides of the hole to form beautiful waterfalls. These waterfalls vary in the abundance and continuity of water flowing from them, and the eastern waterfall is the most active, while the water flow is interrupted from the southern waterfall.” .

The crater belongs to what is known as the geology of the melt pits, which are formed in thick limestone rocks, or what is known as the Abyssinian formation, which was deposited in the Eocene era; According to the team.

The team documented the geological and environmental features of the hole and collected rock samples from it, noting that it will publish a detailed report on the drilling and its geological surveys in the coming days.
