Oasis, how beautiful that sounds! But what exactly is an oasis? On all continents deep underground, we find enormous amounts of freshwater, and where the ground level drops below the level of the deep water, they will rise to the surface. In warm and temperate regions such a phenomenon is nothing special, while in the desert it allows life to arise where it would otherwise be impossible. This is what oases are. They are often inhabited and are always a tourist attraction in hostile regions. The most magnificent oases look from a bird’s eye view, which has become easily achievable thanks to the spread of drone technology. Here are our favorite oasis videos!
Wadi Bani Khalid, Oman – online cameras
Wadi bani Khalid is a long oasis in Oman located in a valley of a river that does not reach the sea at present. Its shores are overgrown with palm trees, in the shade of which fruit trees and shrubs are grown. The water is clean and you can soak your feet in it, it also makes the temperatures lower than in the desert.
