"Map of the Oases in the Western Desert" Al Qasr Favorite Tip by sachara

Al Qasr General: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Map of the oases in the Westewrn Desert
by sachara

Favorite thing: The Dakhla Oasis is one of the five oases in the Western (or Libyan) Desert.
You can reach Dakhla nowadays by tarred roads.
From the north (from Cairo) you pass Bahariya Oasis and Farafra Oasis first. From the the east ( Asyut or Luxor) you pass Kharga Oasis first.

Cairo- Dakhla 805 KM
Luxor- Dakhla 438 KM
Asyut - Dakhla 408 KM

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
