At the centre of the oasis lies the town of Mut, named after the god Amun's consort, settled since Pharaonic times. Now a modern Egyptian town of squat block concrete buildings, it has decent facilities and makes the most convenient base for travellers. You will, however, have a richer experience of Dakhla by staying in or around Al Qasr. Mut’s slumping old town remnants and the proximity of the palm groves help to give it a touch of charm – though only a touch.
