What to expect

Your adventure begins with a visit to the old fishing village of Taqa and its century-old Castle, which was the former official residence of the "Wali‟ (Governor) of the region. Continue onto the ancient ruins of the once famous city of Sumharam (Khor Rohri). The city was the easternmost outpost of the Hadramawt Kingdom on the ancient incense route between the Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf and India. Khor Rori was an important port on the coast of Dhofar, and one of the most important trading cities, which today is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
A picturesque drive then leads you to "Mirbat‟, the ancient capital of Dhofar and the beginning of the "Frankincense trail‟. Stroll through the streets lined with old Omani houses & visit the "Twin-domed Bin Ali's Tomb‟ as a photo stop. On the way back, explore the natural springs of “Ayn Razat” before you returning to the hotel.
