Seems like so many local people have a picnic with family, and we all just beside the Camel! The grass green for camel feed, and clean air, huge place to point. You must go and see with your offroad car,

The frankincense trail is located at wadi dawkah, Dhofar on the Incense Road. The site includes frankincense trees, Archeological sites, oasis and many trees. Its an interesting drive. The Frankincense Trail has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
