What to Expect
One of the most beautiful canyons in Sinai, the White Canyon is a water-carved sandstone chute with dramatic cliffs rising up to 25 meters high. There are panoramic views of the oasis of Ein Hudra from the end of the canyon.
The desert in the Sinai is very diverse with many different faces. There are wide open plains and high sand dunes, surrealistic sandstone hills and rocks carved by winds, flat topped ranges and plateaus offering dramatic views, rugged mountains and a maze of long winding wadis, green oases and hidden canyons. One of them, Mushroom Rock is an unusual formations made by sand and wind that looks like a mushroom. We will visit also the Nawamis Site, a mysterious prehistoric stone buildings, dating back to the Copper Stone Age (4000-3150 BC), which are only found in South Sinai, in several areas. They are believed to be ritual burial chambers, always located at elevated points and facing west. This is the biggest and best-preserved site.
