3. White Desert, Farafra, Egypt

Sandstorms in the White Desert have helped to create intriguing and surreal shaped chalk rock formations.

Located within Hyden Wildlife National Park, the giant ocean wave shaped rock gives visitors the impression that it is about to crash down. The 47-foot high grantite structure is a phenomenal sight.

Majestic and unique, the towering  limestone stacks along the Great Ocean Road were formed way back in time, between 10 and 20 million years ago, through cliff erosion.
