About Bir Wahed Springs
"A favorite excursion is the cold freshwater lake at Bir Wahed. Once over the top of a high dune, you come to [Bir Wahed Springs], a hot spring, the size of a large jacuzzi, where sulfurous water bubbles in a pool and runs off to irrigate a garden. Cooling down in the lake, and then watching the sun setting over the dunes while soaking in a hot spring is a surreal experience. This spring sits among the dunes on the edge of the Great Sand Sea, and amazing sunsets are guaranteed." ~ BBC Travel - Siwa: An Egyptian Oasis
