Springs in Dhofar Oman

Dhofar is famous for the presence of more than 360 springs distributed on the mountain brows and the edges of mountains adjacent to the coastal plain, while a small number of springs are present in An Najd area. 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. Among the best-known springs in Dhofar are:
Arzat Spring: is one of the most beautiful and abundant springs in the Governorate of Dhofar. Visitors should be sure to visit this natural tourist site in autumn to enjoy the flow of pure water through its rivulets and relax in the vicinity of its gorgeous surroundings. The most distinctive feature of this spring is the presence of Arzat Cave, which attracts many visitors.
Sahalnawt Spring: This is one of the springs frequented by many tourists due to its proximity to and ease of accessibility from the city of Salalah.
In Hamran Spring: shady trees of different types abound, such as doum and coconut palms, popular with visitors throughout the year, especially on autumn weekends. It is about 14 kilometres to the city of Salalah, and about 7 kilometres from the main road leading to Taqah.
Jarzeez Spring is the most attractive water spring for many tourists because of its proximity to Iteen Plain. 
From the intersection of Iteen Plain, 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.
Darbat Spring: is located in the eastern part of Wilayt Taqah on the main road leading to Mirbat, on a beautiful mountain slope facing the north. Tourists can see the cascading Darbat Falls from the main road when water levels in Darbat Valley rise after heavy rainfall and the spring gushes and froths. 
Sometimes it is difficult to reach the valley to see the flow from the spring because of the rugged terrain. You’ll need a four wheel drive because less rugged vehicles will find it difficult to access this area. What distinguishes this spring is its beautiful landscape, virgin nature and forests of large cactus and canard trees. At the foot of the mountain, the first thing you’ll see is a beautiful plantation of coconut trees overlooking the valley.
