The "Magic Spring" in El Dakhla Oasis contains clean and good to drink. It was so named because big and small bubbles continuously come on top of the surface of this pond arousing a lazy stream with a slow motion. Probably the locals of the oasis use the water of the spring in cultivating green areas in such a hot, dry environment surrounded from all sides with thick sand dunes.
In Al-Qasr, in the city of Mut, the capital of El-Dakhla Oasis, stands the Ethnographic Museum which features various handicrafts of the oasis such as rugs, dresses, baskets, statuettes, and photos. All these various works vividly demonstrate the daily life of the inhabitants of the oasis.
