Cool temperatures, green fields and lots of rain – it must be khareef season in Salalah
Explore the lush landscapes of Salalah
I t’s hard to believe that the picture (above) was taken in Oman at the peak of summer in the Gulf. But that’s the magic of Salalah’s khareef season in the southern region of Dhofar.
Every year, from June to the end of September, khareef transforms Salalah into a green paradise, as monsoon clouds from India bring a constant drizzle to the area and, as a result, Salalah’s mountainous area is transformed into a blanket of misty pastures. It creates a completely unique landscape, and all just two hours away from the UAE.
