An oasis is a green area with water and grass in the desert.
Oasis has fertile soil and convenient irrigation conditions and is often an area with developed agriculture and animal husbandry in arid areas.
They are mostly distributed in bands near rivers or wells and springs, and in areas with snow and ice-covered foothills.
Oases can be found in the big, bare desert with little rainfall.
And how is this oasis formed?
In summer, the snow and ice on the high mountains melt and flow down the slopes to form rivers.
When the river flows through the desert, it seeps into the sand and becomes groundwater.
This groundwater gushes out of the ground after flowing along the impermeable rock layer to the low-lying areas of the desert.
In addition, rainwater from far away seeps into the ground and can also merge with the groundwater to flow to the lowlands of the desert.
Due to the change in the earth's crust, the impermeable rock layer is fractured, so that the groundwater flows along the fracture to the low-lying desert area and rushes out of the ground.
With the water in this low-lying area, various organisms are born, develop and reproduce.
With this development, the oasis is slowly becoming a journey attraction as well.
The following is to introduce you to 3 of the most spectacular desert oases in the world.
1. Wacachina Oasis
Huacachina Oasis is known as the most beautiful oasis in South America.
It is centered on a natural lake with turquoise water surrounded by dozens of meters of sand dunes.
Because of the lake's medical benefits, it was once a resort in Peru.
The lake is now on the back of Peru's Nuevo Sol 50-dollar bill.
In addition to boating, you can also sand ski and drive dune buggies here.
The Oasis of Huacachina is located in the southern hemisphere, and every July and August is winter in the region, during which time the oasis can be relatively cool, making it more suitable for tourists to visit.
2. Farafra Oasis
Farafra Oasis is perhaps the smallest oasis in Egypt.
It has one of Egypt's famous landscapes, the White Desert of Alberta.
It is located south of the Bahariya Oasis, also within the Libyan desert, 540 kilometers from Cairo.
The desert is covered with a layer of white milk powder-like material, formed by limestone under the long-term action of desert storms.
The people here live mainly in the village of Kasha in Farafra, with about 5,000 inhabitants.
The style of the buildings in the village follows the tradition of simplicity, elegance and simplicity, and keeping the original color of the mudslides.
3. Bahariya Oasis
Bahariya Oasis is an oasis in the western desert of Egypt, which is one of the world famous oases.
From here, you can easily go to the Black and White Desert and the Crystal Mountains.
There are numerous hot springs in Bahariya Oasis, and the famous golden mummy was found there.
Baveti is the largest village in this oasis, and in addition to the picturesque hillside views.
You can also see a natural fountain left over from Roman times that constantly gushes out hot water.
Next door, the village of Kasha was built on top of an ancient temple where you can still see ancient frescoes and mysterious tombs.
Deserts and oases, yellow and green are the most beautiful colors of the earth.
We need to be in awe of nature.
