Depart at 09:00 and drive for 1 hour to the White Canyon. Located 2,296 feet (700 meters) above sea level, you will walk through the canyon with your guide for 1 hour. Known for it's white soft sandstone terrain, as you descend you will come across the Ain Khudra Oasis.

The palm tree and desert paradise is situated 32 miles (53 kilometers) north of Dahab and provides the opportunity to observe the desert in its most natural state.
