The endless White Desert is the Farafra`s principal attraction, geographically speaking. The endless White Desert is also called Sahara el Beyda and is situated at 45 kilometers from Farafra`s North. The name of the desert is given by the huge rock formations of chalk which are the result of the area’s sandstorms. The amazing silhouettes and shapes that can be seen in this desert were created by the water and wind erosions of the chalk. Located in the Egypt’s West, the White Desert can be easily mistaken with an landscape from Antarctica; the hot temperature reminds us that is a desert. The strange formations of the desert, the immense rocks, the strait pillars are so amazing that you can not believe that they are real. The Bedouins call the desert Wadi Gazar, or Carrots` Valley. With its unusual sculptures that are surrounded by fine and golden sand the White Desert is something really unique for the Sahara`s Desert. A trip to the endless White Desert is something magical; you can visit it by car or by a camel, you can camp in desert, sleep under the open air with its beautiful stars! Everything will be an adventure that can not be forgotten! The people who had the chance of camping in desert a week or less said that they had the time of their life in the beautiful and silent White Desert. The rare experience is really difficult to be described in words so you just have to live it! Spending the night in the desert will give you the possibility of hearing your ears` noise since no other sound can be heard. A truly disconnection from the modern world that will relax you and give you the impression of being in another world.
