Expedition Team Meets Many Snakes at the Bottom of Hell's Well
Netgenz - Technology | A cave expedition team from Oman saw that there were many snakes at the bottom of the 'Well of Hell' or Berhout Well in Yemen. The team was the first humans to reach the bottom of the well. The Omani cave tracking team and Mohammad Al Kindi were said to have successfully descended to the bottom of the well to reveal what was really at the bottom of the geological structure that is often associated with this terrifying dogma.
Mohammad and the cave tracking team revealed that there were several snakes at the bottom of the cave. He found many snakes had spent about six hours in the cave. "They breed when there are no predators to consume them. That's normal," he said. Besides snakes, they found many beautiful things. The tracking team admitted that they also found fresh pure spring water at the bottom of the cave. Although in fact this well is popular with dogma as an "evil" cave and the water is dangerous to drink. "We even drank a full bottle and nothing happened to us!" he said.
Next, the team collected samples of rock, water, soil, and some dead animals. They were amazed by the colorful cave pearls glistening through the underground waterfall. "The pearl of the cave is the concentric calcium carbonate deposition that is created around the tree under the falling water," said Mohammad. According to him, the rings were naturally crushed by the movement of falling water over several thousand years.
To make beautiful pearls. For something that Al Kindi could witness, the cave was not touched by human hands or feet. "No initial vision has been immortalized, so it's not clear if anyone actually went there, although it's hard to be 100% sure," he said.

The Well of Hell is near the Yemeni border with Oman in the eastern province of Al-Mahra. Yemeni officials admit they do not know what is under the well. "It's really deep - we never got to the bottom of this well, simply because there was little oxygen and no circulation," said Salah Babhair, director-general of geological surveys and Mahra's mineral resources authority.
The wellbore has a width of 30 meters and a depth of more than 100 meters. underground. What lies beneath is estimated to be millions of years old. "We have visited the area and entered the well, reaching more than 50-60 meters into it. We saw some strange things in it. We smelled something strange... This is a mysterious situation," said one of the tracking teams. If you look from the edge of the well, only a little can be seen.
Sunlight also cannot penetrate all sides of this hole. Even so, birds can still fly in and out of the well. Hell's well is said to be a place of mystery that has long been the subject of many mythologies and folk tales. In folk tales, the place is referred to as a prison for several demons. The call was related to the foul smell that came out of the well.
Over the past hundred years, folk narratives have spread. It is said that there are fellow jinn and supernatural figures who occupy the bottom of the well. "Some people say there are some apostates and some people who don't believe are tortured after death," said a geologist and owner of the Earth Knowledge Discussion Center, as quoted from The National, Tuesday (21/9).
Some residents in the area believe that some objects near the hole can be sucked into it. Many local people are still nervous about visiting the big hole, or even reviewing it, for fear of bad luck. It is not surprising that many trackers were initially reluctant to descend to the bottom of the well, according to a 7 News report.
Mohammad hopes that his visit to the bottom of the Well of Hell, it will dispel some of the dogma around the cave and other similar sites. "I believe that the Well of Hell, known as Barghouti, is a legendary cave that was placed in several caves in Yemen. Now that we are in Khasfat Foujit, the cave should not be named other than the area where it exists," he concluded.
