Sunrise in Kooreh Gaz

Kooreh Gaz is a small place within an hour’s drive (or a bit more depending on the car) of Khur. It has some pieces of land filled with fruit trees and flowers, a couple of buildings and facilities (not electricity, gas or anything fancy), but is usually vacant of humans. Only at night do some camel handlers come and stay until the light hits. Why?

The village has a small stream of water running with the help of a pump. In the dark of the night, camels come from the desert to drink water from the canal in the pen and leave after they’ve quenched their thirst. They live out in the desert and only come to drink every couple of nights. Sometimes the handlers keep them in the pen to do a count and mark any newly born camels.
