Empty Quarter & Lost City from Salalah

Drive across the Qara Mountains and on to the Nejd area of Dhofar. Dhofars most remarkable and popular site with its unspoilt and magical sand dunes. We recommend it highly among Salalah Tours and Oman Day Tours as a whole and you will take an unforgettable memory to share with your family and friends back home. We make a brief stop at Thumrait which was famous as a Bedouin settlement. We drive further to the daunting Empty Quarter or Rub Al Khali. Here we find high sand dunes that rise to a height of 250 metres and above. From here, we drive to the lost city of Ubar, According to myth, the desert swallowed up Ubar.
Quite literally, it sank without trace -becoming the fabled Atlantis of the
Sands. This once buried city, which was spotted by satellite, gives you a glimpse of the value of work carried out by a team of explorers in 1982, led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes. We will have lunch at Thumrait. On our return to Salalah, we pass by Frankincense trees.
