Hoq Cave, Socotra Island, Yemen

Hoq Cave

A 9 kilometer round trip hike from Terbak Village will bring you to one of Socotra’s most impressive sites, Hoq Cave.

Hoq Cave is one of Socotra’s most important archeological sites for its 2nd century AD petroglyphs deep inside the cave.

You can hike about 1 kilometer inside the cave among massive stalactites and stalagmites to eventually end up at an underground lake. 

Even those not so interested in spelunking activities will leave Hoq Cave thoroughly impressed.

Get an early start as it is a fairly steep yet gradual hike from Terbak up to the entrance of Hoq Cave and well worth the effort.
