Valley of Agabat in Farafra Oasis



The beautiful Agabat valley, which means "The valley of wonders", is a well-known place in the western desert covered with various forms of pale and petrified wood colored with creamy white sand and that was created as a result of annual sandstorms in the region.


When most people hear the word "desert", they always remember the spacious valleys and the sand dunes but one of the most surprising views that you can see during the Cairo day tours to the western desert of Egypt is actually the white desert area in Egypt, which is about 45 km north of Farafra Oasis which is known as the land of the cow In the Pharaonic period.

The Agabat Valley is a place of magical beauty that is not repeated anywhere else in the Egyptian desert. It is located en route between the oases of Bahariya and Farafra, near the Crystal Mountain and the White Desert.

The main characteristic of the valley of Agabat is the contrast between the large rocks of impressive white color and the golden sand that surrounds them. The landscape is so beautiful and one can hardly imagine another place like this in the whole world.

It is definitely one of the wonderful attractions that we can find on our trips to Egypt, especially in Egyptian Oasis. That the mystique and charm of the desert, in a sea of ​​sand that goes beyond the horizon line, make us feel small and eternally embarrassed by the greatness and lavishness of nature.

Following the route, past the Hinnis Valley, you reach the depression known as Ain al-Wadi. There, the golden sands are home to tall palms. Further along is the ancient water well of Ain Khadra, an unmissable postcard of desolation and beauty that characterizes this area: a palm stands alone on a hill surrounded by ceramics belonging to Roman, Coptic and medieval times.
