“Mars on Earth”
Review of Denkalya Desert

Reviewed 31 July 2009

Denkalya desert it's a bit of Mars on Earth.
It is a desertic region which offers some of the most unbelievable sites on Earth.
It has many salt pounds of disparate colours: green, blu, red, violet, and so on.
It's very hot, about 60° C during daytime, and very cold at night: excursions to this place must be planned with care, always using local guides. For a "normal" trip of 6 days every traveller needs 6 lt. of water a day. Local guides are used to carry about 80 lt. of water each!
I cannot describe my experience in Denkalya, it would be impossible to do it. I only can post some photos I took there.
