Ibri Festival Camel Race

October 10, 2017

Ibri Festival came race

Located some 279km from the Omani capital of Muscat, the town of Ibri is home to a festival rich in culture with the highlight being the camel race. The Ibri Festival is not the only attraction in the area. The Bat Tombs stretch back to the Um An-Nar period some 3,000 years BC. In 1988 the tombs were added to the UN’s World Heritage list, only the second site in Oman to be rewarded with such an accolade after Bahla Fort. In addition Ibri Castle, built 400 years ago, is well worth a visit. (Photo courtesy-Huwaishal Al Shkili).
