The Bahariya Oasis

Bahariya is an oasis in the western desert with a small town and groves of date palm trees. The oasis is surrouned by an escarpment on all sides, and is actually well below sea level. Deep wells can reach thermal waters that have a high iron content, and the hotel had a hot tub that was refilled every morning by the thermal water. The oasis is the jumping off point for visiting the White Desert.
