DAKHLA:
 Beautiful little Qalamoun

 

Qalamoun, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

 

 


Qalamoun, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Qalamoun is a quick ride out of Mut and much of its old quarters are still inhabited, and well-kept. It is clearly one of Dakhla's nicest settlements, and the setting doesn't make it any worse. Coming to Qalamoun you will pass luscious lakes (keep repeating to yourself: This is in the middle of Sahara) while the the hilltop village grows in front of you. Upon leaving the village, the village is immediately replaced by golden sand dunes.
I think that Qalamoun is the closest I have come to the romantic image of a desert village.

Qalamoun, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Basket made from palm leaves is still an important industry out in this part of the world.

Qalamoun, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Qalamoun preserves what is lost in most of the other villages in the Egyptian oases. Simple but charming houses near the palm gardens.
