The White Desert is situated at 45 kilometers from Farafra North and is also known as the Sahara el Beyda. The White Desert attracts numerous tourists with its cream-white color that is totally in contrast with the rest of the desert that is yellow. The huge rocks of chalk were created by the sandstorms that happened here from time to time. These rock formations have a dramatic appearance, one of the most interesting rocks looking like white pillar that has a balancing rock on the top of it. It is a weird structure that you have to see, if you plan to make a trip to the White Desert. Other interesting forms that can be seen here are the minarets shapes, the castles shapes, the domes and the towers shapes. More, if you choose to make a trip here, you can choose one of the organized trips that include to remain overnight in desert. A night in the White Desert will give you the feeling of the Arctic landscape. This place is also a camping place for Egyptians schools which organize here some excursions. From the White Desert you can go to the Black Desert, which is at 100 kilometers in North East, to the Crystal Mountain, situated at 45 kilometers in North, to the Bahariya, situated at 150 kilometers in North or to Agabat that is at 55 kilometers from the White Desert's North East. In the White Desert the tourists spend their nights and eat under the open sky, because there are no settlements. But a night spend under the White Desert`s sky is no doubt a beautiful experience, the sunset offering an unforgettable view of this “snow” desert. Generally, the trips to White Desert are organized from Farafra or Bahariya, the shortest way being from Farafra.
