Merzouga, Moroccan Sahara Desert

The next morning we wake up early to have breakfast on the roof of our guest house. The view is truly breathtaking. The Sahara is known for its amazing beauty, but the scene in front of us goes beyond our wildest imagination.

It seems as though we are standing on the edge of civilization and facing one of the few places that appears to be completely untouched by humanity. Electricity lines and small roads come all the way to our small town and connect it to the rest of the country. But they do not continue into the Sahara as it is one of the few places that cannot be tamed by civilization.

In front of us there are enormous dunes, the tallest of which reach 150 meters high, and an amazing blue horizon. We decide that our travels cannot stop here and start looking for ways to enter the desert.
