DAKHLA : Budkhulu village

Among the villages that gets visitors, Budkhulu is among the smallest. The main attraction here is the 12th or 13th century Ayyubid mosque which looks almost like an old-style factory with chimney.
And just behind it, dark smoke might appear as it did during my visit. This was the place of an old style bakery, which you will be heartily invited to enter.

Fish pond

The artificial lake northwest of Mut is both called "Man-made Lake" and "Fish Pond".
It is clearly worth the stop for anyone interested in bird-watching. Many of the birds here migrate from Europe, and the Rough Guide travel book series list avocet, stilt and coot as the ones to first look out for.
