The “White Desert” is about 500 km to the south-west of Cairo between the oases Bahariya and Farafra. It is in the middle of a 3,000 square kilometer area meanwhile declared a national park.

Bizarre sculptures, monoliths several meters high, and surreal limestone formation gleaming white like in the Arctic region form the striking landmarks of this charming jewel in the desert.
