We drive from Delo Mena to the Sof Omar Cave, a distance of 150 miles (245 km). The labyrinth of cavers stretched some 16 km through limestone hills; however, only the first 1.7 km can be explored on foot. Luckily, the walk able portion houses the remarkable formations known as the chamber of columns, the dome, and the balcony. The Web River runs through the cave and is responsible for the erosion of the limestone walls into domed chambers and ornate pillars decorated with fossilized mollusks. A walk through the cave requires a guide with a flashlight and about three to four hours; some passages are a challenge and the river must be crossed at some points. The cave has been an important religious site since ancient times and despite being greatly venerated by Muslim in the area, due to shake Sof Omar reputedly taking refuge here in the early days of Islam, many pagans rites and ceremonies seem to carry on.
