Panorama around the sand sheet (erg Chebbi) near Merzouga, eastern Morocco

Erg Chebbi is found in the Moroccan Sahara. It is a stunning display of wind-blown sand dunes that transport you to another world. They stretch for 22 kilometers and some of the dunes are as tall as 150 meters. The sands are believed to heal bodily pains so Moroccans visit each year to bury themselves neck deep in the hot sands.
