The air quality is fine. In the winter, you'll see more smoke in the air, but my family and I never thought twice about it. The summers can get hot, but you get used to it. Temperatures can reach 120F degrees in the Summer, but it never stopped us from a great run. - Mar 2014


At times it is poor. Pollution and dust can make for a very rough combination in the summer. - Oct 2013


It is normally good quality in the spring, summer, and fall. In the winter the villages that do not have electricity will burn anything they can find to stay warm, and the air becomes very smokey and smells terrible. - Jan 2012
