About Erg Chebbi

There are few other sites in the country that compare to Erg Chebbi. Consisting of giant red sand dunes that tower up to 150m in some places, these natural phenomena give visitors a good sense of the grandeur of the Sahara Desert. Located in an area known as Merzouga, the Erg Chebbi dunes line Morocco's border with Algeria. While climbing to the top of one of the dunes is challenging, to say the least, the reward of endless vistas over the vast expanse of desert that lies before you is truly worth fighting for.
