*Soukh Exclusive-the Najm Midi
The Najm Midi is named after the Hawaiyat Najm Sinkhole found in Oman.
I visited this lake of turquoise waters back in 2010 and have since been unable to stop thinking about the different shades of blues found within. •
The sinkhole was formed by a collapse of the surface layer due to dissolution of the underlying limestone. However, locals believe that it was created by a meteorite, ‘Hawaiyat Najm’, which translates to ‘The Falling Star’ in Arabic.
I’m going to go with what the locals believe.
