Sof Omar

Sof Omar, a tiny Muslim village in Bale (south east of Ethiopia), is the site of an amazing complex ofSof-Omar-Cave natural caves, cut by the Weyb River as it found its way from the nearby mountains. The settlement, which is a religious site, is named after a local Sheikh.

Armed with torches and an official map, visitors to Sof Omar Cave make their way underground, far into the bowels of the earth, beside a subterranean stream, and there can see an extraordinary number of arched portals, high eroded ceilings and deep echoing chambers.
