Talks of the Camel (Part 1)

Every year between June and September, Dhofar in the south of Oman, between Mirbat in the east and beyond the Yemeni border, is exposed to the south west monsoon better known as the ‘Khareef’. Scientifically, this most intense large-scale seasonal coastal upwelling system in the world together with the south west trade winds cools the air to dew point. This natural phenomenon causes rain, fog, drizzle rain, nice cooler temperature.

For the flora, fauna and the local people magic is in the air. From the second day of Eid in August till 6th of September there is the annual Salalah Tourism Festival
