The Black Desert lies near Bahariya Oasis, a little north to White Desert. Black Desert got its name from the mountains covered with a layer of black basalt rocks and volcanic rocks that erupted from the volcanic hills ages ago. The black desert has also some red hills with ferruginous sandstone and earthy minerals. These mountains on the yellow sands of Western Desert make Black Desert a sight to behold and enhance the charm of Egypt Desert experiences.
