Jarzeez Spring

Home > Dhofar > Jarzeez Spring

Deep in a forest of trees

Nestled in a deep forest of trees, Jarzeez Spring is especially popular during Khareef – monsoon season – when the surrounding Iteen Plain turns into one of the greenest areas of Dhofar.

Dhofar is famous for the presence of springs distributed on the mountain brows and the edges of mountains adjacent to the coastal plain. Most of these springs have water all year round.

Seasonal rains, known locally as AL Khareef, are the primary source of the underground reservoirs in the mountain and plain areas. Rain falls regularly on the plains region and the mountains adjacent to it from the end of June to September every year.

Jarzeez Spring is one of the most attractive water spring for many tourists because of its proximity to Iteen plateau. From the intersection of Iteen plateau, the distance between Jarzeez Spring and the city of Salalah is about 7 kilometres. What distinguishes this spring is the forest of shady trees that sits at the foot of the surrounding mountains.
