Take a tour of White Desert in Egypt — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
In western Egypt is a place that looks more like a snowy plain than a desert.
Really, the White Desert gets its name from large amounts of chalk in its sands.
Besides an eerily beautiful panorama, there are fascinating chalk formations in the desert.
The White Desert is visible from the highway, but a closer look requires an all-terrain vehicle.
It’s not only legal, but quite safe, to go camping in the white sands.
A visit to the White Desert is a unique experience that will be a lifelong memory.
