Among several scenic spots in Egypt's Western Desert that have a peculiar look, the Black Desert is located about 20 km south of the Bahariya Oasis. The Black Desert is a mysterious landscape of small hills with black-colored surfaces that rise to the surface of the earth. If you climb one of the black hills, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Black Desert to your heart's content.
Of the desert areas that cover approximately 90% of Egypt's land area, the vast desert west of the Nile River is known as the Western Desert. Hidden in the world of rocks and sand as far as the eye can see are the magnificent landscapes of the Black Desert and White Desert, known for their unique topography. At some oases, which have flourished as trading cities since ancient times and retain ruins from various periods, visitors can enjoy a peaceful moment surrounded by date palms and olive trees.
