But actually the drive there and out towards the canyons in back wins the day but you you will need a 4 wheel drive to snake down the dirt road to the deserted wadis below except for camels.

What a beautiful place it is; It is a historical place The best thing about is the drive there; filled with greenery; misty air and beautiful views all the way; Since people are visiting from so many different countries along with their kids; usually the whole Oman is so very nice and clean but over here was probably the first...

The drive to Nabi ayoub's tomb is a wonderful experience as the road takes sharp turns while climbing the lush green mountain sometimes clouds full of moisture restrict the view but its enjoyable anyway.. Did not like so many stalls at the tomb causing the trash throwing around the tomb. Visitors should act responsibly by keeping these places clean.

We were lucky to witness clouds descending over the mountains with zero visibility . One should drive carefully with hazards on. Misty rain and a visit to secluded space uplifts the soul.

This place does not possess any unique feature. It is a waste of time, however the scenic drive is good. The tomb is on the mountain. As a contrast to many desert areas of Oman, Salalah is green and cool during July & August. It therefore makes a pleasant drive. We used a professional guide who spoke English well and... More

Some think that the tomb of Job is in Lebanon but regardless it was an interesting drive up there. We were shown along a path, past the women's mosque, toilet block, mens mosque and gardens (a bit scruffy with rubbish strewn about). The Tomb itself was inside a concrete building with a rug over it. Outside is a small well-like... More

very interesting to visit.. depending on your religious beliefs would depend on how much time you might need to visit.. for us it was relatively short but extremely interesting to see. its a little way to drive but the journey was fun for us as well.
