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.
