The drive there through the desert (on good roads) was quite scenic. The Wadi itself is also rather dry (in spring), but it's interesting to see the Frankincense trees.

Is a nice place to visit. There is the Frankincense Park with a lot of trees. Usually there is a person watering the trees. If you show some interest he may provide you with a little guided tour and some explanations. As well he sold some frankincense to us. We saw the flowers and the bees in there.

Spectacular drive up the mountain out of Salalah to see a plantation of Frankincense trees that are obviously highly important historically and symbolically to Oman

Frankincense is a type of tree resin. The trees used to grow wildly, now they are concentrated in some kind of plantations. An incision in the bark causes the juice to leak out, which dries and is used as a frankincense. I was surprised that they are not coniferous but deciduous.

We called here to view the frankincense trees as a part of our desert tour to the Empty Quarter. Sadly, the wadi is really not much of a spectacle. The government are experimenting with mass cultivation of frankincense trees and have planted a small grove in Wadi Dawkha but the trees are, thus far, immature and lacking in presence. Our guide took us to a large wild tree where he explained and demonstrated how the frankincense is harvested which was very interesting.

UNESCO site that celebrates frankincense trees, unique in the world and present only in this area of Oman.
A fundamental stop for those seeking to understand the culture of this wonderful country.
