Top 10 Fascinating Deserts In The World.

  karma level 71946

1. Taklamakan Desert (Xinjiang, China), the snow-covered desert

Taklamakan is one of the largest sand deserts in the world. In 2008, a heavy 11-day snow covered the desert and transformed it into a white world.

2. Lencois Maranhenses National Park (Brazil), the desert with salt lakes

Every year from July to September, heavy rainfall creates thousands of ponds in the desert. The white sand dunes mixed with blue lakes will leave you wondering if you’re in a desert or by the sea

3. Uyuni Desert (Bolivia), the world’s largest salt-lake desert

As the world’s largest salt lake, Uyuni has 65 billion tons of salt, with many salt beds spanning more than 10 meters. The surface of the lake reflects the sun’s light like a mirror, and the body of the lake is colorful because of the mineral deposits at the bottom. But with an altitude of 3,700 meters and 10,000 square kilometers of uninhabited lake area, it can be difficult to reach it.

4. Farfara Desert (Egypt), the white desert

In contrast to the yellow deserts in most other places, this desert 45 kilometers north of Farafara, Egypt, is a creamy white.

5. Atacama Desert (Chile), the driest desert

According to the “Guinness Book of World Records”, the Atacama Desert is the driest in the world. A 400-year drought recorded here lasted from the late 16th century to 1971.

6. Namib Desert (Namibia), the desert with elephants

Located on the west coast of South Africa, Namib Desert is considered the oldest in the world. You can see many animal and plant fossils, dunes that are up to 300 meters tall, the highest in the world, and, if you’re lucky, maybe an elephant or two.

7. Simpson Desert (Australia), the red desert

Simpson Desert is famous for its red color, caused by ferric oxide rust covering the sand and then turning to powder and mixing with the sand.

8. Black Desert (Egypt), the black stone desert

Located in an area formed by volcano eruptions that is just 100 kilometers northeast of the Farafara white desert, the Black Desert is littered with small black stones.

9. Antarctica, the world’s driest but most humid desert

The average rainfall in Antarctica is less than 5 millimeters, but at the same time, 98 percent of the land is covered with ice and snow. The result of these extreme weather conditions is dryness, humidity and cold temperatures that make Antarctica uninhabitable for humans.

10. Sahara, the largest desert in the world

At over 9 million square kilometers, the Sahara covers most of North Africa and is home to a number of peoples and languages. The desert stretches from the Red Sea, including parts of the Mediterranean coasts, to the Atlantic Ocean
