Inspiring Erg Chebbi Dunes in Sahara Desert, south Morocco

Erg Chebbi 🇲🇦

Erg Chebbi Dunes are a stunting part of Sahara Desert, on the southeastern part of Morocco, close to the Algerian border.

This incredible sea of sand is the ideal place for a couple of days enjoying one of the best holiday destinations in Morocco. Explore the dunes and admire a beautiful sunrise or sunset over the horizon.

“Having a surprising orange hue, the Erg Chebbi Dunes are one of the most beautiful places in Africa.”

Challenge yourself to climb the 250 m / 810 ft “Grand Dune” near Merzouga village. The serene warm wind will welcome you. The vistas are breathtaking and worth the 1 hour effort climbing up.

The first picture is especially stunning. Reminds me of the beauty of the Namibian desert.
