Waba Crater Adventure

Waba crater is a deep hole in the ground with the depth of 380 meters. It's 6 km away from Hafer Kashab village, 39 km north from Om AlDom village in AlTaif. It's about 460 km away from JEddah which is about 5 hours driving.

 

The center of the crater is covered with a white coloured salty layer, it's believed that it comes from the rain water staying in the center of the crater forming a small lake that doesn't sink in to the ground.

 

Researchers believe the crater was formed due to a volcanic explosion and others say it's due to the fall of a huge shooting star, but there is nothing to confirm any of the theories. When you go down about 15 km from the ground you can see a lot of palm trees and the small plants the grow on the water, and if you go furtheryou can see a little of desert plants that disappear fast whn you walk towards the center of the crater.

This crater is considered to be the deppest in Saudi Arabia.
