We reach Thumrait town which got famous as Bedouin settlement and next up we cross the huge gravel desert of ‘Al Nejd’. Our next stop is Lost City of Ubar which is situated in the desert and being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s located around 175km from Salalah City. Legends say that this town, Ubar existed in one of the most inhospitable places known to man – Rub Al Khali Desert also known as the empty quarter. Myths say that desert swallowed up Ubar town completely over the course of years and it sank without any trace of who or what it was and it became the fabled ‘Atlantis of the Sands’. Satellite spotted this buried city and a team of explorers led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes worked on it and restored the city and hence becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its value to our civilization Rub Al Khali Desert is also known as the biggest sand desert in the world and it stretches on forever you will think. We walk around the Lost city of Ubar and proceed to Empty Quarter to experience Rub Al Khali Desert and its fantastic Sand Dunes. At the top of the dunes you will be able to have a real good overview of the vast and endless desert before you. We have a traditional Arabian Lunch/Picnic Lunch and proceed to our accommodation for overnight stay.
