Wadi el Hitan camping

Magic lake

The Magic Lake is one of Egypt’s most stunning lakes, with views of sand dunes. Around the lake, you’ll be able to watch one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see.

The Magic Lake is a stunning lake in Fayoum’s Wadi El Rayan. Because it changes colours multiple times a day depending on the time of year and the quantity of sunlight it receives, it was given the moniker “Magic Lake.”

It is a breathtakingly gorgeous desert setting. Hiking and sandboarding are popular activities near Magic Lake, as well as swimming in the lake itself. Minerals in the lake are claimed to aid in the treatment of rheumatism patients. It’s a lovely setting for a magical journey.
