Wadi Dawkah Natural Park of Frankincense

Frankincense plays a big part of the history of Oman. In order to preserve the frankincense trees as well as the frankincense industry itself, Wadi Dawkah is declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Found in the Dhofar Region, the Natural Park of Frankincense Trees covers a valley of 5 square kilometers of frankincense trees.

The tree grown in the area is the Boswellia sacra which is said to produce the best type of frankincense.

Time to Visit
