About this tour

Embark on an Unforgettable Adventure: The Frankincense Trail Trekking with Adventure Tours!

Join us on a journey back in time, as we follow the ancient and fabled Frankincense Trail. Frankincense, a prized aromatic tree resin, holds a history that dates back to at least 1500 BC, and even today, it remains one of the most sought-after fragrant tree resins in the world.

In the footsteps of our grandparents, we proudly invite you to experience life as it was lived a thousand years ago, engaging in the harvesting and trading of frankincense from the land of the trees to the harbor for export. Accompanied by expert guides and local “Jabali” inhabitants, we’ll trek the frankincense trail, accompanied by their camels carrying our essentials, covering 60 kilometers in two nights and three days.

Trekking Plan:

Day One: We start our adventure at 500 meters above sea level, trekking 10 kilometers to reach 1250 meters in elevation. As the sun sets, we’ll camp for our first night under the starlit sky.

Day Two: After a hearty breakfast, we continue our trek, covering 27 kilometers as we make our way to the next night’s camping spot. The rugged terrain and breathtaking landscapes will captivate your senses.

Day Three: Our journey takes us down to the ruins of the old frankincense harbor in the charming village of Hasik, situated on the Arabian Sea. A place steeped in history and culture. From here, we’ll drive back to the hotel in Salalah, cherishing the memories of this unforgettable adventure.
