My name is Nader Al-Wehibi, an employee at the General Organization for
Social Insurance. I would like to express my gratitude to you for sharing
the great knowledge of caving on the web site: www.saudicaves.com. I
enjoyed reading every word on the web site. Thanks again.
Since caving is my hobby, I would like to get some information from you.
cousins and I have created a small caving team, and would like to go on
first caving trip. So, your input will help us, and thus will be much
First, I would like to get the exact location of The King Fahad
Second, I need your advices in caving in general, and whether special
equipment is needed. (besides what is mentioned on the web site).
Third, I would like to join a professional caving team, if possible.
if there is any organization for caving, I certainly would love to be a
member of it.
Please, provide the information as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your kind words about the website! We are glad you like
We are not sure where you are located, but will guess that you are in
Riyadh. If so, you are not far from many very nice caves. Your wish to
a professional caving team is right on the mark. Caving can be very
dangerous without the proper equipment and training and the cave itself
easily be damaged if visitors are not careful and well instructed.
For some time we have been thinking about holding a training session in
Riyadh, perhaps followed by a cave trip the next day. We would go over the
rules that cavers follow for survival underground, let you practice with
gear, show you what you need and where to get it, etc. Please let us know
if you and your friends are interested in this. If so, tell us how many
people might like to participate and we will take it from there!
