Ain Umm Al Dabadib

Western Desert

This impressive fort sits on a ridge rising grandly out of the desert plains about 20km west of Qasr Al Labakha. It has one of the most complex underground aqueduct systems built in this area by the Romans. Trips here qualify as serious desert excursions and you'll require a 4WD with experienced drivers, who can be contacted through the Al Kharga tourist office. You are only allowed to be here until sunset.
