Desert Tour Sunset
Romantic sunset in the largest sand desert in the world
Experience the beautiful colors of the desert sand during the sunset in the desert. Wadi 'Dawka' (UNESCO World Heritage Site), because of the largest collection of naturally-grown frankincense trees in the area also known as the Frankincense Wadi, is your first stop of the day. Passing the ancient Bedouin town of Thumrait, drive through the large gravel desert 'Al Nejd', to experience the next attraction of the desert after about 175 km, starting in Salalah city. On the edge of the Rub al-Khali (also called "Empty Quarter") is the archaeological site of the legendary trading city Ubar, whose magnificent buildings and their inhabitants according to the Qur'an are said to have been sunk in the sand by Allah 2,000 years ago. Then it goes off-road towards the sand. As you take a walk through the vast expanses and enjoy the tranquility, search for the best vantage point in the pristine and magical desert dunes. On the top you can admire the breathtaking view and the romantic sunset, before returning to the hotel in the dark.
