We did a 2 day trip into Terngerli Desert. We had a great driver taking us there with overnight stay in small tents in the desert. An amazing experience and really a great place to visit.

I went wandering about with a bunch of friends, camels and tents. A lovely desert and a great break from our busy lives on the Mainland. Very isolated - would recommend a tour guide.

I had a wonderful time riding camels, sliding down the park and hopping on the truck going up and down the dunes. My only regret was not able to spend a night in the desert to get a feel of the desert night looking at the stars above.

Best time to go from late May. Can stay in the hotel right in the desert, named Shamo Hotel, marched around with camels, sleep with starts twinkling in the sky. PS: Food are so nice and cheap!
