Along the road…

Sightseeing in Dhofar is always exciting. Besides beautiful cliffs plunching  down to the sea, typical for the west of Salalah, there are the camels who makes the environment alive. Historically camels were important when frankincense trade was at the highest point. Still today the camels make their way independently during the day. So you can find them everywhere even on and along the road. For several reasons camels have a special place in the heart of the Omani’s as expressed in the pictures of our guests during their tour to Jebel Al Qamar .

Colors of stones ….

Beside the sunny side of Dhofar, there are also the colors of the stones that are a pleasure for the eye.

The geode, spherical, hollow, inside beautifully crystallized….still for geologists a wonder how they were formed…

With the rays of the sun the stones of ‘Sumhuram, the archaeological site,’ a highlight to visit and a highlight during the ancient Frankincense trade, becomes radiant….

 

Stones as fire, ancient meeting place for the Bedouins, for tea and meat…

About the incense trail….

This documentary is still a special one, with information about the ‘grandeur of the Frankincense trail’ in the past. For thousand of years frankincense has been prized in ancient times and was valued more than gold. The first part of the documentary is in the south of Oman, in Dhofar, where the Boswellia Sacra or Frankincense tree is at home. For the filming Kate Humble could count on the experience of Arabian Sand Tours.

But…anyone who wants to follow the footsteps of the Frankincense trail in Dhofar, or who wants to organize a stay in the desert where the camel caravans went through…just send Arabian Sand Tours an email….
