Bright white limestone formations define White Desert, a national park in Egypt. Pure white to cream-colored chalk formations feature rocks that have been abraded, pitted, etched, and polished by centuries of erosion and sandstorms that dominate the landscape here. Tour a natural museum of chalk rock and admire the hues of sunlight across its bizarre surfaces. This popular campsite area also features a number of oasis wells. Visitors typically hire a Bedouin guide; you will need a four-wheel drive vehicle. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to White Desert by using our New Valley Governorate day trip planning website .

2泊3日のツアーで行きました。まっ平な大地に真っ白な大小さまざまな岩山が点在しています。岩の風化と雨による浸食により、彫刻作品の様な形状になっているものもあります。非日常的な景色を存分に楽しめます。 more »I went on a tour of two nights and three days. A lot of white and small rocks are scattered on the flat ground. Some of them are shaped like sculptures due to the weathering of rocks and erosion due to rain. You can enjoy the extraordinary scenery.
