Camel-Trekking to Watch the Sun Rise Over the Sahara in Morocco
Well after nightfall, you'll meet your camel and settle into your saddle to start the bumpy trek into the undulating and shifting sea of sand that surrounds the oasis of Merzouga. The only sound penetrating the profound peace of the desert is the sandy whisper of camel steps. Just when the tantalizing expanse of stars above you seems almost within reach, little by little it starts retreat. You slip and slide your way to the top of the tallest dune as the eastern sky begins to glow. The dunes are on fire and you cast the longest shadow of your life on the golden sand below, sealing an unforgettable moment.
