There is a huge thermometer to show the temperature. Nothing much here to see unless you want to ride the camels and various activities.

Beautiful coloured mountains that change colour in different sun lights and cloud cover. At one part, there is a view point where a local sells hard boiled eggs cooked in the hot sand! Taste the same, just slightly discoloured.
