Dahaisi Cave

Difficult to locate and known for its ancient rock art, Dahaisi Cave is of interest to those who are fascinated by the ancient history on Socotra Island. 

Located on Momi Plateau but accessible from Homhil, a short trek will bring you to the difficult-to-spot entrance to Dahaisi Cave.

Inside the cave opens up into several different chambers, eventually delving down into a sump where cave drawings that are believed to date back as far as the 1st century BC can be found.

Ask in advance about visiting Dahaisi as a local guide from a nearby village is necessary to arrange to get to the cave.
