Get ready to experience the magic of Khareef 2024 in Salalah! This year’s Khareef Dhofar season, organized by the government, promises over 180 activities and events spanning 90 days until September 20. As the monsoon rains transform the Dhofar region into a lush, green paradise, Salalah becomes the ultimate destination for a unique and unforgettable experience.

Khareef, which means “monsoon” in Arabic, is a seasonal phenomenon that turns the Dhofar region into a verdant wonderland from June to September. This natural event brings cooler temperatures, misty rain, and vibrant greenery, attracting visitors from around the world to witness this stunning transformation. H H Sayyid Marwan bin Turki al Said, Governor of Dhofar, announced the start of this year's Khareef on June 21, promising a distinctive tourism experience with plans to expand event locations and improve visitor services.

Last year’s Khareef saw nearly 1 million visitors, and this year aims to surpass that with a wide range of activities focusing on five main themes: environment, public health, youth, children, and arts and culture.

The Salalah Tourism Festival will be a major highlight, featuring traditional music, dance, and food, offering a rich cultural experience. New attractions include Aten Square, which will host games and a state-of-the-art theatre for international shows, along with spectacular lighting, laser, and fountain shows, and extensive drone displays. Salalah Public Park will introduce weekly endurance and sports events, additional sports facilities, and playgrounds.

For culture enthusiasts, the inaugural Dhofar International Theatre Festival will showcase six genres of theatre with top performances, competitions, and distinguished guests. The 'Return to the Old Village' event will highlight Dhofar’s rural, Bedouin, marine, and agricultural environments, providing a unique cultural and heritage experience.

Outdoor adventurers will find Khareef the perfect time to explore the stunning landscapes of Dhofar. You can visit Wadi Darbat, known for its beautiful waterfalls and natural springs, or hike through the green mountains. For the more adventurous, activities like paragliding, mountain climbing, and off-road driving await.

Sports fans will be thrilled with the Salalah International Cycling Tour, featuring four stages and over 100 cyclists. The Oman Automobile Association’s Celebrations Square will offer competitive activities for car enthusiasts, while Al Damar Beach in the Wilayat of Mirbat will host the Dhofar International Drag Race championship.

Families will love Kiddy Time at Awqad Public Park, featuring international animated shows and interactive play areas for children. Aten Square will offer e-games for all ages, as well as pedestrian walkways and green spaces for a leisurely stroll.

Governor H H Sayyid Marwan bin Turki al Said emphasized the importance of environmental sustainability in enhancing tourist sites, including natural landscapes and waterfronts. This commitment ensures a memorable and eco-friendly experience for all attendees.
