Things to Do in Egypt: Visit the Crystal Mountain in the White Desert

We visited the Crystal Mountain in January 2016 on our second trip to Egypt. The Crystal Mountain is located between the White Desert and the Black Desert (the remains of an old mountain range) in the Egyptian desert. The mountain is actually more of a hill, and is covered in barite and calcite crystals. While we explored the mountain, our guides laid out a rug, drank tea, and had some snacks.
