The Erg Chebi Dunes

The dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga lie 30 miles (50km) south east of Erfoud and have the highest and most spectacular sand dunes in Morocco. Rising dramatically 50m from the desert floor, these golden dunes run in a line almost perfectly north/south to the village of Merzouga and beyond, and mark the western fringe of the Sahara Desert, dividing Morocco from Algeria.
