HAIL – Shuwaimis Cave, located in the southwest of the Hail region, is one of the three longest caves in the Kingdom with a length of 530 meters. The Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH) is studying the prospects of developing the cave into a tourist center after providing necessary facilities.

Ziyad Eyada Al-Misyoul, director of the commission’s branch office in Hail, led a delegation to Shuwaimis. “The main purpose of the visit was to explore the prospects of making it a tourist destination,” he said. The SCTH also intends to inscribe Shuwaimis on UNESCO's list of the World Heritage Sites.

“We’ll discuss with our partners to build necessary infrastructure facilities in Shuwaimis in order to woo tourists and visitors to the area,” Al-Misyoul told Al-Hayat Arabic daily.
