2/ WHICH ROUTE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Once you've chosen your destination, all that's left is to find an route that suits you!
But since there are so many to choose from, start by going over the key points: How long? What budget? What level of difficulty? In a group or not? A trek with more of a focus on nature, history, or a bit of both? Etc.
All this will help you refine your search to find THE trek you've always dreamed of.
From here you can:
> Using a travel agency specialised in trekking
> Design your route yourself: why not, but not before going 2 or 3 times in the same desert and with the help of a local guide.
We'd advise you to opt for the 1st suggestion: the desert is a completely different environment from the ones you know and it's probably safer to go through a specialist organisation with full local knowledge. Especially since once you get there, you won't have to worry about anything !
A little tip from us: make sure you check out price comparison sites for online offers and get inspiration from stories of travellers who have experienced a similar trek.
