Morocco: Erg Chebbi, the Merzouga’s dunes

Erg Chebbi (Arabic: عرق الشبي‎) is one of Morocco’s two Saharan ergs – large seas of dunes formed by wind-blown sand.
This Erg is also knowed as “The Merzougas Dunes” beccause the proximity of Merzouga village.
The dunes of Erg Chebbi reach a height of up to 150 meters in places and altogether spans an area of 50 kilometers from north to south and up to 5–10 kilometers from east to west lining the Algerian border.
