Desert Wadis

Desert Wadis

It is a group of water valleys in the eastern desert of Egypt, which includes Wadi Qena, Wadi El Gemal and Wadi Allaqi. In the past, these valleys were rivers flowing from the regions of the Red Sea Mountains and towards the eastern desert in Egypt.
All of them today have dried up and become seasonal valleys. These valleys are distinguished by their diverse biogeographical characteristics, which express a transitional phase between living organisms from the equator in the south to the Mediterranean in the north, and it is also characterized by its close connection with the cultural and social life of the human societies that have inhabited, moved, and migrated throughout the ages.

Desert Wadis was submitted in 2003 to the UNESCO Tentative List in Egypt.
