To get from one desert oasis to another one is not at all what a trip in the Egypt desert really mean. It is about adventure, exploring, discovering so many unique and interesting things, seeing amazing landscapes. Every oasis of the desert has its extraordinary attractions, and more, there are numerous things to see between these oases. For example, if you plan a trip to the Farafra oasis you will first have to see the Baharyia oasis and this place is so beautiful that you will hardly want to leave it. At a small distance from the Baharyia is situated a place called Al-Haiz, which in fact is a group of hamlets and farms, with a generator that provides electricity and without any telephone. It is somehow a rustic place, with a paved road that leads to it. The Baharyia Depression surrounds that place that in the Roman period used to have a large number of inhabitants. It seems there are numerous antiquities undiscovered yet. One of the Al-Haiz attractions is the Saint George's Church, dating from the 5th century. The ruins of the Roman fortress Qasr Masada are also one of this place’s attractions., where you can see so many shards of pottery with clay that have different colors: red, orange, pink, grey. And if you go from there to the Farafra oasis, you will meet the Crystal Mountain, the visitors favorite plays for taking photos. The Crystal Mountain is a huge formation made from quartz crystals, with a big whole like an arch inside of it. There are many crystals on the ground, if you want to take some of them with you as souvenirs or as a gift for your friends, so it is not indicated to tear off the crystal from the rock.
