Oman’s Dhalkut is ready for Khareef

Lush green mountains and beautiful views of the Arabian Sea in the Wilayat of Dhalkut, Dofar Governorate

Dhalkut: The Wilayat of Dhalkut annually welcomes the beginning of the autumn season with fine drizzle and foggy weather that breaks the heat and humidity of summer, which makes flocks of tourists flock annually from inside and outside the Sultanate of Oman to this Wilayat.

The Wilayat of Dhalkut, which is located on the coastal strip in the western corner of Dhofar Governorate, is the first Wilayat where the Khareef season begins. It is one of the Wilayats of the Governorate that is famous for the beauty of its pristine nature and the variety of its wonderful views, where the visitor enjoys the splendor of the place and the picturesque nature it contains.

The Wilayat of Dhalkut includes the Khadhrafi area, which is located north of the Wilayat center, 28 kilometers away. The aromatic Kadi trees grow naturally there, as these trees were found in large numbers in the past. Over time, their numbers gradually began to decrease due to overgrazing and the increase in the number of animals in the area. This rare tree almost became extinct, as its numbers could be counted on the fingers of one hand, which necessitated intervention to preserve these trees, propagate them, and spread them. Sultan Qaboos University contributed to this project in the past years through research.

The Wilayat of Dhalkut is distinguished by its diverse terrain, beautiful nature, and abundant fish production of molluscs, such as squid, shark, and various types of fish that Dhofar Governorate is famous for, in addition to the archaeological sites and inscriptions discovered on the walls of caves, which indicate the depth of the Wilayat’s civilization and history. There is an old mosque there that was built about 350 years ago, and the Wilayat also has many crafts and agricultural products, in addition to its moderate weather throughout the year.

The wilayat is famous for many natural springs descending from the valleys of Jabal Al Qamar, the most important of which are / Kharfoot – Al Mughsail – Khadrafi – Sarfit / in addition to many natural caves and caverns that were formerly a refuge for humans and animals in the face of weather fluctuations, the most important of which are: Shisa – Mashloul – Asbir, and there are some archaeological inscriptions on their walls, which have now become, along with the springs, beaches and green mountains, tourist attractions of the state. There is also a giant and rare tree in the state called the Baobab tree, one of the largest and biggest trees currently existing in the Sultanate of Oman. It is visited by tourists, and is a tourist and environmental stop for them, visitors, and those interested and researchers in plant and wildlife.
