Dear Fellow Drivers,
On the road from Salalah to Duqm, across mostly flat and nondescript desert, I encounter a canyon of inspiring beauty and grandeur.
In Duqm, Abdullah, my host at the Duqm City Hotel, recommends I make a day trip along the coast to Ras Madrakah. Ras-Al-Madrakah – a wondrous combination of jagged rocks, rough seas and vigilant sea birds.
So, fill up your tank. Travel with me across the desert and through the mountains to the sea.
