Why Oman is ideal for stargazing

Oman is a nation that is mostly composed of dessert, most of its land is uninhabited apart from major cities. This significantly reduces light pollution and in most of the regions, one could observe the night sky very clearly.

Remote locations and less populated regions in surrounding cities like Nizwa are the ideal places for this activity if you are wondering how you could find a remote location in Oman, you could opt to stay in a resort property the likes of Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort which is located on top of a mountainous region away from the cities.

Stargazing facts

Things remember

During winter months at night, the temperature tends to reduce drastically so it is advised that wear appropriate clothing that will keep you warm. Also, if you are into photography it is better to bring your DSLR cameras for those spectacular long exposure shots.
