Siwa Oasis, once the most mysterious of all Egypt’s oases, Siwa Oasis is also the most fascinating. It’s history has not only been shaped by all major civilizations, but also by the contrast of the surrounding desert with the lush soil of the oasis setting.

The Siwan people have their own culture and customs and, as well as speaking Arabic . Women still wear traditional costumes and silver jewelers and Siwa remains one of the best places to buy traditional local handicrafts.

Description

Gebel Fuga, in the remote Sinai interior to the east of Serabit el-Khadim, is a large desert plateau surrounded by mountains. On a sloping hillside there is one of the most interesting geological oddities to be seen on the peninsula. This area has been given the name Forest of Pillars – an accurate description for this large group of black lava-like twisted columns of rock which appear to grow out of the side of the mountain like stalagmites. The rocks range in size from baby bubbles on a flat surface to tall corkscrew shapes reaching to a metre or more in height and crowded together as if they were supporting each other. The columns appear to be hollow and many have been broken off and left to lie on the surrounding sandstone slope.
Running adjacent to the Wadi Feiran, from north-west to south-east, lies the Wadi Mukattab, whose name means the ‘Valley of Writing’. In the base of the valley the steep rocky walls contain around three kilometres of ancient writings and graffiti carved or bruised into the rock. The wide sandy wadi was deserted and very beautiful in the late afternoon when I arrived there but many of the carvings were darkened by shadows and our Bedouin guide was getting restless as dusk would soon come to this remote place.
