interesting story

The tree of life has an interesting story, as there is no obvious water source. Good tourist spot and interpretive center.

This is an interesting place about a half hour from Manama it is a huge tree in the middle of nowhere that is very old and grows in the desert as a result of an underground river. Lots of people there and the camps around it made it busy this time of year with traffic etc.

Directional signs for traffic to find their way to the tree have been greatly improved. Once you reach the site you will discover that there have been improvements and the perimeter now has a concrete walkway and steps leading to the tree. Its disappointing that some people think its ok to engrave their name on the tree. Apart from that... More

It is an interesting place, but do not expect more than a tree in the middle of the desert. It's worth the trip only if you don't have anything else better to do or if you wish to know the Bahrani countryside, as the tree is located far south.

So it is a large tree in the dessert. There's not really anything else to see or do out there and it takes a bit to drive there. It's interesting that it's such a large tree and could be a photo op. Whether it is worth it to you to make this detour will be a personal decision.

This tree takes ABOUT two hours to get to from the city and it's just very blah. They say it's the "last remaining tree from the Garden of Eden" however, I would disagree because when you look more into the tree itself, it's about 400 years old and I believe is an "American" tree, so that just doesn't add up....

The first time I went here...like 6 years ago, it was just a tree in the middle of the desert, kinda hard to find. NOW...it's a huge tourist spot. Plenty of touristy type signs, a stage, and still the centerpiece is the Tree.

You should go in camping season so you can see campers and see camels with youth group in motorbike everywhere. Then move from tree of life to the gathering area wich is in the middle of the desert. It's safe to hire a bike ride. If you have a friend or social friends ask them to invite you in their... More
