* Sand Dune trip
Double Canyon (Small Arada Canyon)
The area gets its name from the Arada plant, a Bedouin medicinal herb thought to cure athsma, which in the Sinai, appears only here. Upon closer inspection, you'll find that the plant's leaves change color during the summer to a shade of blue.
Dragon Head Mountain
The mountain derives its name from its shape, as it looks like the head of a dragon. If you look closely you can even see the teeth of the dragon. This mountain is also known as ‘ the mountain with the hole’. The hole in the mountain is considered to be the eye of the dragon.
El Hedoda is Sinai's highest (800 m above sea level) and most expansive areas of sand dune terrain. The name itself comes from the Bedouin word meaning "to tear down". As it is one of the naturally highly windy locations in Sinai, once there you will see for yourselves how the sand comes rolling down when the wind hits.
We start at 08:00 and drive for 2 hours to the Arada Canyon. We will walk through the canyon with our guide before eating lunch at one of the Bedouin houses in the area. We will then drive to Safra Sand Dune to play and roll in the sand, before moving to Bir Safra to play in the water. From Bir Safra we will drive for about 30 minutes to Gebel Makhroum (Mountain with a Hole) and to the Hedoda Sand Dune for some breathtaking views. We will arrive back in Dahab around 5 in the afternoon.
