Wadi Degla: The Ancient Sea

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Me and my sister participated in a fund raising marathon project of a school for the whole family in Wadi Degla.    It  is a secured place for camping and outdoor activities with an entrance  fee of  5-10 LE.   It was a cold sunny day, a perfect weather for outdoor sports.  It’s a huge area where you need  transportation.

Its  astonishing rock formation, sea breeze, seaweeds and marine fossils will make you feel like standing under the ancient sea.   It’s truly a marvelous creation.

“Step through the gates of Wadi Degla and you are literally walking on the bed of an ancient sea that existed around 50 million years ago, formed by flood waters mixing with natural salts in the earth. The valley is rich in marine fossils. The valley offers a true glimpse of the habitat and wildlife of the Eastern Desert. The 50 meter high cliffs forming the main valley have fascinating rock formations, shaped by water movements millions of years ago. Walking in the midst of them feels as if you are truly out of this world!” – Maha Khalil
