Blue Desert Dahab Egypt tours, prices, booking, reviews

Blue desert Dahab located near to St. Catherine, Egypt. In fact, the desert is not a natural creation like Black desert and White Desert. It is a work of art. The Bluse desert Dahab created in 1980 by Belgian artist Jean Verame. In fact, the groundbreaking Egyptian-Israeli Peace Agreement was in 1979. The agreement inspired him to paint several large boulders in this barren desert region. In fact, the artist painted the rocks in a bright blue color which symbolizes the peace. The unusual peace monument situated in the South of the Sinai Peninsula. In fact, this region had battles between the warring countries. In fact, it was before the peace agreement.

Further details about the Blue Desert Dahab:

The artist used a total of 10 tons of paint, which granted from the United Nations. Moreover, the artist created similar monumental pieces of art in Morocco and Chad. The Blue desert transcends its functionality as a peace monument. Moreover, the desert features four miles of painted stones. Some of them rise to heights of over 30 feet. In fact, it is a vision in which Berame used color to alter the substance of the rocks. At times they appear more like giant balloons, or great gobs of cast-out chewing gum. The stones contrast with the reds, browns and yellows of the desert. A day trip from Cairo to the Blue Desert Dahab will be a good choice. Just contact us.
