Hoq Cave, Socotra

This is one of several large caves on Socotra, and evidently of the more easy ones to access. This photo is close to the end, at least for tourists. It was very hot and damp in this location.

Inside I must say I was surprised how big the cave really is. Without any human or human made item in front to compare, these structures could be any size really, but the one seen here is huge!

Here I’m sitting by a much photographed stalagmite close to the entrance. You can see the light pouring in from the left.

Here the local guide is sitting at the source of the light coming in from the cave opening – this gives an idea of the scale of things here!
