A team of Omani cavers has made the first descent to the bottom of Yemen's fabled "Well of Hell" (video)
The forbidding 'Well of Hell', whose dark, round aperture creates a 30-metre (100 foot) wide hole in the desert floor of Yemen's eastern province of Al-Mahra, plunges approximately 112 metres (367 feet) below the surface and many locals, believe it is a prison for genies.
"There were snakes, but they won't bother you unless you bother them," Told Mohammed al-Kindi, a geology professor at the German University of Technology in Oman.
While down in the pit, the cavers collected samples of the water, rocks, and the downed birds that will later be analyzed by scientists.
