The tour begins with a visit to the old fishing village of Taqah, famous for the manufacture of dried Sardines and its traditional old Dhofari Houses. Then the trip continues to visit old Taqah Castle.
Continue onto the ancient ruins of the once famous city of Sumharam (Khor Rohri). The city of Sumharam was the easternmost outpost of the Hadramawt Kingdom on the ancient incense route between the Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf and India. One of the major trading cities with frankincense, believed to have been harbor for the shipping of Frankincense.
A picturesque drive then leads you to Mirbat, the ancient capital of Dhofar and the beginning of the ‘Frankincense trail’. Next visit is to twin-domed Bin Ali’s Tomb.
On the way back, we explore the ever green Wadi Darbat for a relaxing stroll along the Wadi bed, surrounded by herds of camels, goats and cattle. During the monsoon period from July, August and September, one could also witness an almost 100 m natural Waterfall.
Return to the hotel in the afternoon.
