Camel Rock - New Valley

The Stagnant Camel Rock

  • 05 16, 2023

How did the Camel Rock form?

The mountains and rocks in the New Valley desert represent many forms in the form of animals, birds, or trees, due to the factors of erosion, sculpture, and sedimentation that the desert went through during the ancient historical eras, and in that arid environment devoid of rivers, seas, and oceans. You will recognize the shapes of the rocks in Egypt tours to the desert especially the white desert in Bahariya Oasis.

The Crouching Camel Rock is considered the most famous rock that is located at the entrance to the village of Tanida in the Balat Center, ask our team to visit it on Egypt desert safari tours to discover the famous rocks there.

Why was the rock called Camel Rock?

It was given this name because it is in the middle of a desert area in the form of a camel, as it derived its name from its shape, which is not much different from the shape of the crouching camel. Plan to see it with more sculptures of rocks during Egypt travel packages.

The director of the Regional Tourism Promotion Authority in the New Valley says that the rock is located only a kilometer from the highway, which connects the Dakhla Oasis with the Kharga Oasis, which showed it greatly to the tourists who flock to the region, especially since its height is more than 12 meters, and it is in the middle of farms and fields.

He stressed that the rock has become an important shrine for tourists, and several Bedouin parties are held next to it, especially on New Year's Eve, to which hundreds of tourists flock to spend that night to the tunes of the Bedouin flute.

He added that the rock of the crouching camel is not the only one that enjoys great fame in the New Valley, as many other rocks represent different forms of animals, trees, and birds in the White Desert Reserve and the Great Gulf, such as the rock of Al-Farkha, Al-Mushroom, and Al-Khabour, all of which are registered as natural attractions on the international map of tourism.

He pointed out that the commission included the rock among the tourist attractions in the governorate, after its reputation became widely known, as it was placed on the tourist map in the governorate as one of the rare natural phenomena, and it has also become an important destination for foreign and Arab photography enthusiasts, who flock annually to the governorate, especially in the winter season, pointing out that the authority is studying the establishment of a tourist village in that area due to the influx of Arab and foreign tourists.
