“If you see but you don’t know what you’re seeing …”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

…ask a German! After reading his work (to b14643.de/Sahara/Crystal-Mountain/index.htm) this structure seems to me much more impressive than a simple aesthetic pleasure. This attraction is a very beautiful connection between the Black Desert and White Desert. The driver, Mahmud, gave us a bonus, some distance away he showed us another interesting rock formation.

“Very pretty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

It's cool. It's a crystal rock. Interesting geology and a nice view of the barren desert beyond. Maybe not worth a special trip, but all part of the excellent package deal to the White Desert which is the real attraction.

“Beautiful cristal formation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This site may not be big, but the crystal formation are spectacular in my opinion.

It’s a shame they are really very loose and many people take some away…in no time there will be nothing left…

So get there quick to appreciate what nature can create…

“ok for a short stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's a nice place to visit for a short stop, but it's nothing majestic as the name might suggest. The first time I went there, in Jan 2012, we stopped for some 45 mins, which was a waste of time really. 10 mins is plenty.
