About
This sunset trip is one of the best trips in the world. In the southern part of Oman, on a single day, you will be seeing the largest desert of the World "Empty Quarter" that spreads across many countries of the Middle East. What else could be better than a walk on the desert and seeing the setting sun. You will see the historical site of Ubar at the town of Shisr, known as The Lost City or Ubar or Atlantis of the Sand or the city of the pillars. This city was used for the trade of Frankincense, which was once traded as Gold and Silver. You will also see the 5 square kilometer spread plantation of Frankincense tree on the natural reserve at Wadi Dawkah. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the frankincense trade. The drive will be in 4x4 vehicle through Al Qara Mountains with amazing views of Salalah city. Dinner will be served before dropping off.

We really enjoyed our trip to the desert. Mohammed made the day really special and told us many interesting things about his country and culture. In addition to the planned stops he also showed us a camel farm, helped us to buy some frankincense and let us try some camel meat. It was a great experience and we would recommend it to everyone who visits Salalah.

Thank you to our amazing guide Mohammed!! It was great!

I was very happy that I found “Beautiful Salalah” on Trip Adviser!

On first day in Salalah I booked a Desert sunset tour. It was very cloudy & raining, but our guide ( I think his name was Hafet) made everything that we enjoyed the trip and we really did. I’ve never seen such beautiful desert. Thank you, our guide :)

We decided to book a trip on our second day with the same agency and it was a right decision again. We booked camel riding & feeding trip. Our second guide, Abdullah, was also very good - he was also very helpful, showed us a nice place for dinner and stayed with us for few more hours after the trip has finished.

All I can say is that I can highly recommend “Beautiful Salalah” and if I come back here again, I would again use the services of this agency
