Dunes here reach a height of 250 meters, air temperature - a record-breaking 56 °, and the amount of precipitation, on the contrary, is the minimum. But despite the harsh climate, the desert is inhabited by lizards, rodents, camels and predators, here and there you can see some vegetation - palms, saltworts and camel's thorns. Besides that, the place has become an oasis for travellers who want to feel hot breath of the desert - ride buggies or quad bikes, try sandboarding, arrange a jeep desert safari and see traditional Bedouin camp.
