~~~~~~~~~

Salalah and Dhofar region offers visitors an enormous variety of things to see and do. The natural beauty of the surrounding area is breathtaking. You can witness the stunning views of dramatic mountains reaching right to the edge of the sea. You can experience wadis and beaches as well as the springs. Salalah is a coastal city located on the shores of the Indian Ocean, in the southern part of Oman. Although close to the Arabian desert, Salalah enjoys a pleasant tropical climate and even in the summer the temperatures are not too hot as the coastal fringe of Dhofar and Salalah is touched by the winds of the southwest monsoon between June and September. The surface winds encourage an upwelling of colder waters in the Indian Ocean which cool the over-lying moisture-laden air. The fog cools temperatures considerably, such that Salalah is a popular destination for Gulf visitors in the summer as a respite from the relentless heat. The phenomenon of this rain-bearing fog is known locally as the Khareef.

Lush greenness and fog is the last thing one would expect in the Middle East, especially in the middle of summer when temperatures in Kuwait are reaching nearly 60C. Salalah in Oman however offers such a retrieve during Khareef season. The hills and plains are changed to a green oasis due to drizzle downfall and water springs gush in the wadis and in the fogy hills. When the sun light touches the grass, the green is brighter than anywhere I've seen.
