The Incense Sea Route

 Wadi Fiqreh

This long wadi or dry river bed was the main conduit for caravan traffic between Avdat (Obodat) and Wadi Arabah. There were several wells along this route, as the camel caravans would pass down the dry riverbed. This route was not used when rains threatened flash floods down the wadi.
