5 Reasons Why You Should Absolutely Visit Salalah This Year

Towards the end of June each year, as the Khareef (monsoon) season begins, the landscape around the southern city of Salalah, is almost magically transformed. The dull browns are replaced by rolling green hills, misty woods and sparkling mountains springs.





1 - Because of its incredible rock formation.
The rocky outcrops on the beach in Mughsayl contain many blow holes that spout dramatically during high tide.




2 - Because there are gorgeous landscapes.
Travel down long winding wadis through dense forest set along rocky slopes and see them suddenly disappear into the mists.




3 - Because you can have so much fun.
The annual Khareef Festival offers the best in entertainment for the whole family.



4 - Because its stunning green colours.
Overnight, the rugged brown hills around Salalah are transformed magically into a lush green landscape.

5 - Because of its mountains.
Green mountains drop to the very edge of the Indian Ocean.




During Khareef season, temperature drop to a comfortable 30 degrees making Salalah a perfect place to escape the summer heat and enjoy the annual Khareef Festival which takes place every July and August. The Salalah Tourism Festival runs from mid June to the end of September.
