Review of Valley of Agabat

Valley of Agabat
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Farafra
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 April 2014

I like the scenery, almost without other human beings in sight.
Find flower stones there with silver inside. You could find seashells/fossils because this valley used to be part of the ocean. This is the place to unwind from the crowded Cairo.

Had to go nearly 80 million years for this wonder to be born. Its name is Agabat, sometimes spelled as Aqabat, Akabat, Akabbat or Aqabbat. Million after million, shell after shell and one microorganism onto another, the old seabed began to be enveloped in limestone and chalk. Slowly, the sea disappeared, the seabed begun to rise and all around, the “green of life” surfaced. After another million years, the vegetation left room to an arid desert and again, million after million, the soft rock was sculpted by the sand drifting into large valleys and strange mountains. After another million years, the chance led us in this place. Proud and spectacular, it has no similar in the world, with every color of the light and shadows enriching the vision. When seeing it, the humans are going crazy of happiness and start doing unusual things ... there is too much beauty ... mountains of white and red limestone with sand dunes sliding from the ridge valleys. We were in this particular place (27°28'41.41"N 28°15'45.99"E) but all the area, miles around, has breathtaking views ... brother Traveler, if you go there, please, do not spoil anything.
