Before the sunset we will head to the White Desert. Upon entering the area you will feel that you are walking on the moon surface as you will see the white sand looks like snow and the different limestone rocks all over the area resembling a variety of Human heads, chicken and Mushroom shapes, and plants forms. They were created by the act of the harsh wind in this area. You will stay in the area for a while to capture some photos and watch the sunset. The surface's color of the area is changing with the change of the light of the day time from orange to ink to purple and during the moon light time you will feel that you are standing a snowy area as the scenery of white sand is so similar to the snow within this time. We will take some photos around the sunset time. Then we will get back to the Black Desert for camping.

    This was extremely overpriced and more importabtly dangerous. My brother and I literally felt like we were kidnapped. They served one meal the night off and a huice box with snacks for breakfast. Not a private tour but w other groups. Super fast and most time is spent driving unscenic areas with 5-10 min stops in nice areas but 15 mins stops so stafg can smoke at gas stations.
