Siwa oasis is well known for its variety in Tourism excursions, there are Historical tourism, Medical tourism,adventure tourism,etc. People from all over the world come to Siwa to swim in the desert! Yes,swim in the desert as it has thousands of natural springs and the famous Salt lakes!
There are 4 large salt lakes that have depth 4m and 95% concentration of Salt in it, The large presence of salt helps people float on the surface of the water even though they can't swim and the salt also helps heal many medical conditions, especially skin problems. People float in the lake in groups holding each other's hands individually, fruits are served and also they can read a book while floating peacefully.
The lakes are results of the concentration of salt from surface wells and it produces millions tons of salt that are exported to Europe. The Oasis is located 300-South west the mediterranean town Marsa Matrouh and 350 miles away from Cairo below sea level which gave it an opportunity to have mind-blowing natural landscapes. The best time to visit Siwa and of course the Salt lakes is in April and October as the weather there can be less hot.
