It is this season again that I love so much about Oman when temperatures drop to certain degrees and when it becomes a little cooler at dusks and dawns. Many Omanis would proudly claim that in winter season (which i consider as cooler months with practically no snow fallen down) like this, it is ideal to roam around the country and visit some spectacular places like those in the mountains.
So when the government declares 4 days off to commemorates its National Day celebration, my family and some of our good friends pack up and head off to Jabal Shams for an ultimate adventure of a lifetime – an overnight camping at Oman’s highest peak.
Jabal Shams is also known as “mountain of the sun” which rises at an altitude of around 2000+m above sea level. It is one of the most visited tourist destination and has been in my bucket list for quiet sometime.
And when we finally get there, I witness the Change of Season that happens before my very eyes.
At the popular visitor’s deck, I see the amazing Grand Canyon with ridges of milt-layered rocks. It is a picturesque and beautiful sight. The temperature varies from 13degreeC to 16C during daytime. We set up our camp near a resort. At midnight the temperature reaches 8.75degreesC but my kids are peacefully sleeping in our tent while I am chilling to death. But fortunately, we survive. In the early morning, we see and feel the clouds hovering over the mountain’s peak.
Truly magical but a wonderful experience for this year-end escapade! And this is my entry of this week’s photo challenge: CHanGing SeaSons.
