  • Its about a 30 minute drive from the Liwa Hotel to Moreeb Dune, but remember to take your time as the scenic road incorporates timeless views of dunes, big and small, red and orange, and maybe the odd...  more »
  • A nice emotion am especially because we went out of season. That's the premise. From Liwa you follow the very clear directions to the Moreeb Dune, the highest sand dune in the world, over 300 meters. The road is very good, not lit but definitely good. Just beware of a few sandbars that partially cover the lane, traffic in April is practically absent. You stop so many times to cover these 20 km to take pictures of the dunes. As you head towards the border with Saudi Arabia, the desert becomes more important and interesting to see and photograph. Impossible not to stop at almost every curve Every now and then there are small camel farms, and you also pass a salt lake. Then you get there. This is the bitter sweet. Certainly not for the moon which is definitely important with an incredible slope of 50% that would make it difficult to climb even on foot. It's what happens at the bottom that puzzles: several constructions including a couple of concrete stadiums that house grandstands, a children's playground, several permanent circuits for camel and horse racing. And also a kind of circuit for jeeps and dune buggy that in winter compete along the slope of these dunes. In short, a real amusement park that fortunately this season is totally deserted (it is active between November and January) While we were under to contemplate the moon and the crap made by man came down an Arab who drove one of these 4x4 monsters. He greeted us we exchanged a few words of pleasantries and then invited us to go to the moon. He made us take an amazing ride, climbed to the top hovering on the sandy ridges. A truly unique experience that we will carry in our minds forever. We have taken magnificent photos of the Void Quarter, as it is called by the Islamists the desert (Allah created heaven, land and sea and left an element empty, the desert). Once we got off and thanked our friend very much (who didn't want anything) we went not far to climb a lower dune and watch the sunset. A unique emotion, really, many colors and hundreds of photos and timelapse that we could not forget easily.

  • Spectacular landscapes and vistas. Unless there is an event make sure you bring your own outdoors stuff to be able to spend time.
  • It is a spectacular place in the middle of desert to enjoy the serenity and beauty of nature in the form of tall sand dunes. Ideal place for camping in winters while enjoying campfire and music with friends and family and also having Barbeque.
