Frankincense Trail

Sightseeing Tours

05 Hours

Dhofar, the southern region of the Sultanate of Oman was known for centuries for its production of frankincense. Immortalized by one of the three Magi when it was presented as a gift to the newly born Christ, frankincense, an exotic tree resin with a sweet intoxicating smell is used today in places of worship in praise of the divine. Once traded as a commodity more precious than gold Dhofar's harvest was considered the best in the world. Now days the remaining trees are found deep in the mountains inaccessible by coach. Drive on a road steadily winding up a steep incline where herds of camels and cattle can be seen grazing to reach the tomb of Prophet Job. According to legend, the remains of the Old Testament’s prophet were found here. The place is sacred to Moslems, Christians and Jews alike. Visit the tomb and enjoy panoramic views of the striking Qara mountains. Continue to Mughsail with its white sands stretching for almost three kilometers creating a beautiful and unspoilt beach. At the far end of the beach titanic blow holes spew sea water thirty feet high into the air during high tide. Driving towards Yemen the" hairpin bend" road flanked by sheer white cliffs on either side affords views of deep valleys down below dotted with frankincense trees. Back in Salalah visit Al Balid Museum (named as Frankincense Museum), which presents a comprehensive picture of the customs and historical aspects of this region before returning to the ship in time for lunch onboard.
