We went to M'Hamid where we slept in a hotel. The next morning were we going in the desert, which begin first with hamada, it is only sand and stone. We had 4 × 4, a normal car can not go there in the piste. We met camels and sheep and goats. Were visiting even one oasis there on the way.
After 2 hours (40 km) we arrived in ergs, so sacred I declare that just as one my friend had written to me once, that the dune Lhabidia is 120m high so even according my travelpartner may even be only 90 meters and not 300 meters high dune as even the locals there says.
Otherwise, the size of Erg Chigaga is about the same size as Erg Chebbi, 30 km long and 10-15 km wide. Erg Chebbi is a bit narrower (10km), but then higher, long also 30 km.
There are only campsites, no hotels, they are either only in M'Hamid or Zagora.
It was there just FINE but Erg Chebbi I like more.
Zagora is even greater than 5 years ago when I was there last time and how I enjoyed 10 years ago, so now I do not like it at all.
But I am happy to be there anyway, it is a new experience. It is quite different from Erg Chebbi, especially so the height of the dunes. Hamada is there more than in Erg Chebbi, but not so much in any case.
We saw there also poor dead camel, or rather the skeleton of him.
So I graduated Erg Chiggaga, but I have to say that the Erg Chebbi I like more.
