Ghard Abu Muharrik And The Sand Volcano

Safaris to El-Qaf often continue 20km further east to see the Ghard Abu Muharrik (“Dune with an Engine”).

Somewhere out in these wastes, Samir from Western Desert Safari in Bahariya has discovered what he calls a Sand Volcano, where sand blows up from a subterranean fissure – a phenomenon that has yet to be explained and which can only be seen on his tours since he jealously guards the secret of its location.
