Egyptian White Desert one of the most spectacular places

Fri, Jun. 30, 2017
CAIRO - 30 June 2017: The White Desert is one of the most spectacular places in Egypt as far as the Pyramids, Spanish newspaper Listin Diario said Wednesday.

"The landscape in Egypt is as impressive as the cultural landmarks of the pyramids of Giza, the mosques and the ancient monuments that attract many tourists to this African country," Listin Diario added.

The White Desert is a natural protectorate located in the north of the Farafra Oasis, 500 km from Cairo and it is defined as a nature protectorate since 2002 and was named the White Desert because it contains white sandstone rocks. It also contains large chalk rocks and very special sand formations resulting from sandstorms in the area.

"The combination of the white sand with the sunshine makes the White Desert such a unique place, besides being a very safe place where there are no dangerous animals. The mushroom formations are among the most abundant in the White Desert of Egypt. Wind erosion has been responsible for giving them these unique forms," the newspaper added.
