Oman // Dhofar //

West of Salalah

West of Salalah lies the Jebel al Qamar, one of the most dramatic sections of the Dhofar Mountains, which rear up out of the sea at the village of Mughsail (home to an impressive trio of blowholes) and march along the coast in a sequence of dramatically sculpted crags and sea cliffs, best appreciated from the tiny coastal village of Fizayah. Beyond here the road rides the top of the mountain plateau to the Yemeni border at Sarfait, although the border itself remains closed.
