The sandy desert is often a storehouse of wonders and mysteries. Known as the enduring work of art of nature, it offers a wide range of stunning views.

At the same time, some secrets lie dormant in the depths of the desert. Discover some of the best and most incredible mysterious places hidden in the heart of the desert ...

Burhout in Yemen

A zinc hole in the surface of the Yemeni desert has been the center of mystery and local folklore for centuries. Some call it the 'hell pit' and 'the well of hell', while others call it the 'prison of geniuses'. Now, when the tourists first descend to the bottom of the Singol, they witness a spectacular number of sights. Not only animal remains but also snakes and natural creatures made of dripping water were found inside.

Wadi Shab, Oman

In a gorge in the Sharqi region, there is a hidden sanctuary with azure water and rich landscapes. Combined with three pools, it is also a great sanctuary for nature. The biggest attraction of the place is the Wadi Shab Falls hidden in a cave. It can only be entered by swimming through a small gap in the rocks.

Fairy Circles, Namibia

Another attraction is the millions of circular spots embedded in the Namibian desert. Science has not yet come to a conclusion as to whether this is the work of gods, aliens, or ants. Similar circles have been found here and in parts of Australia.

The desert of Petra

The desert of Petra is the wonder that Jordan has in store for the world. The land was carved out of the rock by the Nabataeans, a nomadic tribe, over 2,000 years ago.
It was the capital of their wealthy trading empire. The treasury, Colonade Street, the altar, the royal tombs, and the theater can all be found in this archeological site. When the Nabataean civilization declined, it was taken over by the Romans.

Dessert Breath, Egypt

The Desert Breath of Egypt is a marvelous work of art in the desert.
Greek Art Collective D.A.ST. Artem created an installation in 1997 near El Gauna, a resort town in the Sahara Desert. At 280,000 square feet (26,012 sq m), the spiral-shaped sand sculpture was a protruding structure 100 feet (30 m) in diameter. It was once filled with water and then evaporated. This piece contains 89 elongated angles, which gradually increase in size. The artwork is slowly being restored by nature, and the artists said they created this extraordinary installation to serve as a tool to measure the passage of time.

Masada, Israel

This rugged, impressive fort in the middle of the desert is carved into the face of the rock, blending in with the surrounding landscape. The mausoleum, built by King Herod in 30 BC, is one of the most important archeological sites in Israel. The UNESCO-listed camps, forts, and ramparts surrounding the complex are incredibly well preserved.

Coober Pedy, South Australia

Australia is located 500 miles (805 km) north of Adelaide, 430 miles (692 km) south of Alice Springs, the two nearest major settlements, as far as Coober Pedy is concerned. City dwellers are known to live in underground dwellings (or pits) that allow them to escape the extreme heat and dust typical of the Australian outback. It is also known as the Opal Capital of the World since the discovery of semi-precious stones here in 1915.

Colemanscope, Namibia

Following the discovery of diamond deposits in the early 20th century, Colemanscope was once one of the richest cities in the world. About nine miles (14 km) east of the port city of Luderitz, thousands of workers were brought in to dig at the site of the Namib Desert. History tells us that the city flourished until 1928, when a larger diamond deposit was discovered 160 miles (257 km) south of Colemanscope.
