The Ennedi Plateau is often referred to as the Utah of the Sahara. The rock formations and natural sculptures are out of this world. Nowhere else have I seen tall thin spires like this that remind me of minarets and church towers.
The Ennedi Plateau, nestled in the northeast of Chad, is a natural sandstone masterpiece spanning 40,000 km2 of sculpted landscape marked by cliffs, canyons and natural arches. Labelled as an Eden in the Sahara, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2016 for its unique natural formations and rock art that dates back 7,000 years.
