7 Preparing for Travelling

Preparing for Travelling




Summer in Oman lasts from March/April to September/October, and the entire country is very hot. Temperatures here can rise up to 40°C from May to July.

It is not advisable to visit Oman during this period unless you are visiting Salalah, where temperatures remain bearable thanks to the annual Khareef that descends from June to August or early September.

Visiting the area will give your lifelong memories despite the trouble getting accommodation and the hiked prices.

Winters last from October/November to February/March, and the entire country is temperate with an almost Mediterranean climate.

Daytime temperatures rarely exceed 30°C making it the best time to visit Oman. Evenings and nights in Oman at this time of year can be pleasantly breezy and even occasionally a little chilly, especially up on the cold heights of the Saiq Plateau and other elevated areas in the mountains.

Oman, except Salalah during the Khareef, is extremely arid, and rainfall is rare though there may be a modest shower or two, most likely from December to March.
