Your guide will meet you at your hotel to drive to the old fishing village of Taqah and old Dhofari Houses. Visit the century old Taqah Castle. Continue onto the ancient ruins of the once famous city of Sumharam (Khor Rohri). The city was the easternmost outpost of the Hadramawt Kingdom on the ancient incense route between the Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf and India. Khor Rori was an important port on the coast of Dhofar, and one of the major trading cities with frankincense, believed to have been the hub and harbor for the shipping of Frankincense (UNESCO World Heritage site). A picturesque drive then leads you to Mirbat, the ancient capital of Dhofar and the beginning of the Frankincense trail. Stroll through the streets lined with old Omani mud houses and visit the twin-domed Bin Al's Tomb.It is a classic example of medieval architecture. On our way back to western Salalah, explore the natural spring of Ayn Razat, beautifully laid out amidst the tranquil lush mountains & nourished every day of the year by natural underground spring water. proceed to Qara Mountains to explore the western part of Salalah. On a road steadily winding up a steep incline, herds of Camels and Cattle are a common sight which gives a scenic view of a traditional Dhofari rural beauty. Then visit the ancient tomb of Prophet Job situated in the scenic green mountains of the Salalah Plains. Experience the legendary story of Prophet Job and his devoutness. Proceed to the beach of Mughsail where the white sand touches the deep blue of the ocean, where waves burst through the natural titanic Blow Holes, at the far end of the Rocky beach with a cave-like entrance. We thereafter continue along the Hair-pin bend road towards Western Border of Oman, with its breathtaking cliffs on either side to see the historical Frankincense trees growing in their natural habitat deep down in the valleys dotting the dry and craggy countryside. We take a short walk into the valleys to smell the Holy Incense amidst the scenic view of the region. On our return we make a photo stop at the lagoon at Mughsail where migratory birds.
