Baharriya Oasis and Bawiti

After a short rest, we continued for tour around Baharriya Oasis and Bawiti. Bahariyya Oasis is situated in a 2000 sq km depression about 265km southwest of Cairo. Only depression on the desert floor can have enough water to support agriculture and prolonged settlement. Bawiti is the main village in Bahariyya Oasis.

Panaroma view of Bahariyya Oasis, a lot of palm, lake and desert floor furthest away.

One of the many hot springs in Bawiti. The oasis has a lot of hot and cold springs that are the life line in the Oasis.
