Driving to the edge of the Empty Quarter

Only driving one way takes about four hours from Salalah. But anyone visiting Dhofar cannot allow missing this experience. Perhaps the best is to camp and stay overnight to enjoy sunset and sunrise.

Please make sure you deflate your tires. And go with a local guide and at least two cars.

Pros: Amazing sunset and sunrise

Cons: It’s far from Salalah and requires lots of planning


Most of the time we had mobile coverage. Directions for the last hour of drive you can find here.
