After a relaxing night at the magnificent al Baleed by Anantara Resort, we will hit the road that takes to the Rub al Khali Desert, along the frankincense trail. At Shisr, interpreted as the mythic city of Ubar, we get off road to reach the dunes. During a spectacular sunset we will experience a powerful yoga session, perfect to connect with the immensity of the Empty Quarter. We will enjoy a traditional desert night at our Bedouin camp. From sunrise to sunset a full day dedicated to meditation and yoga among the golden dunes. We follow the triliths, stone monuments created over 2000 years ago to show the way to the camel caravans carrying precious frankincense, and relax on the shore of Arabian Sea. A unique chance to withdraw from your routine and recharge your energy.
The route goes from Salalah to the town of Shisr, crossing Jabal al Qara, the central mountain of the Dhofari Range, goes back to the coast on the pre-desertic plateau of Nejd, and back to Salalah along the high cliffs.
