The Beautiful Deserts of the World

All continents have deserts. How many have you visited?

I don’t know about you but I love deserts!

I’m about to trek in the Sahara, the largest desert in the world. Why are these dry, inhospitable landscapes so stunning? Life seems to hang precariously in temperatures that can reach upwards of 50 Celsius and plummet to minus 50. Animals, plants, insects, humans all adapt and thrive. A photosphere of Insta.

That's a beautiful Andrea. I would love to trek at Sahara, soon. I've tried trekking at Atacama Desert in Chile and it was really great. Reply to this

I love deserts too Andrea...the Sahara at the Festival au Desert outside Timbuktu in Mali was the hottest yet the 'coolest'...the Atacama in Chile the most saline...the deserts of Australia the most hospitable for the people you meet...the altiplano deserts of Tajikistan, Bolivia and Chile the most high altitude gob-smacking.

I too am drawn to desert landscapes. Visually I think they are stunning and I guess they can be quite the contrast from what I'm used to back home. I would love to check out a piece of the Sahara, or the Aticama or central Australia but I haven't made it to those...yet. The ones I have been to are southwestern US of A, the Negev in Israel, UAE and Oman, desert in central Iran, the Thar in India, and the Gobi in Mongolia. Reply to this

They say who was not on a safari, he was not in the United Arab Emirates. A trip to the sandy mountains is in itself a real adventure and a sea of ​​emotions, even if you are in the passenger seat. Experienced Arab drivers will show you real miracles, from time to time guiding the car to difficult places where it seems impossible to drive. And the inconstant mood of the Arabian desert and the variable shape of the dunes will make your adventure special and unique. Reply to this
