Salalah & Empty Quarter

Salalah is located in southern Oman, and is the capital of the Dhofar region, known as the land of Frankincense. The area is unique in that it faces the southwest monsoon, and between July and early September (a season known as the ‘khareef’) coastal Dhofar is almost miraculously transformed into a land of lush pastures, flowing rivers, and waterfalls. The area has some superb beaches and these are generally better than those in Muscat. A day-trip into the Empty Quarter is certainly worthwhile, and you can also opt for a one or two-night camping experience to truly feel like you are getting off-the-beaten-track.
