    SU8WD - Wadi Degla Protectorate - Egypt

    The Egyptian Radio Amateurs Society For Development (ERASD)

    SU8WD Special event for environment activity "Wadi Degla Protectorate" lies in the northern part of the Eastern Desert and runs east to west for 30km. The area, which encompasses 60 kmĀ², was declared by the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) as Natural Protectorate in 1999.
    Wadi Degla is one of the most important valleys in Egypt . It passes through the limestone rocks that had remained in the marine environment during the Eocene Epoch in the eastern desert (60 million years). Therefore, it is rich with fossils. The height of these rocks alongside the valley is around 50 m. The rain water dropping from the waterfalls affected the limestone rocks along the years and formed the so called canyon Degla, which resembles the Grand Canyon in the states.
