Short Visit to a Desert In Cairo
Wadi Degla is located in the southern part of the city in Maadi
The Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency designated Wadi Degla as a protectorate area in 1999.It covers an area of 60 Square kilometers
The bottom of which is fairly flat. There are lots of side canyons for you to explore.
Step through the entrance gates of Wadi Degla Protectorate and leave Cairo’s congestion and pollution behind. In front of you lies a winding valley that continues for as far as the eye can see, flanked by rock formations. Wadi Degla is a perfect escape for hikers, bikers, rock climbers and nature lovers alike
The air feels clean and temperatures are noticeably cooler than in Downtown Cairo. The area is completely quiet and the city appears impossibly far in the distance. Visitors will be amazed at how a short car ride can transport them from Cairo’s noise and crowds to absolute serenity and silence.
If you are lucky, you may even spot some of the protectorate’s wildlife. Apparently, Wadi Degla is home to various species of birds, reptiles and bats, There are also many fossils from times past when the valley was covered with water.
The rock formations surrounding the valley are ideal for bouldering and exploring. In most areas, they aren’t too steep; so you don’t need to be an experienced climber. Instead, you just need proper shoes and the willingness to become covered in sand and dust. Cyclists and joggers will most
likely stick to the trail that leads through the valley, as it is where the terrain is the smoothest. The protectorate is also a great location for a picnic,
It is a lovely place Multiple activities can be done there; hiking, BBQ, camping or biking. The best time to visit it is at winter as it gets very hot.
