Dunes of Erg Chebbi

This page is dedicated to all the desert region near Merzouga Village and the Dunes of Erg Chebbi.

I now live here, in the village of Hassilabied. Any questions regarding anything just email me.

Erg Chebbi is the name called to the big amount of orange sand near the village of Merzouga. Erg stands for Dunes in arabic. This place of dunes is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Morocco.

Watching the sun rise or sun set in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi may be the most spectacular experience you have on your trip to Morocco, and one of the most beautiful moments youll have in all your life!.
