The white dessert with the countless ponds

The national park Lencois Maranhenses is located in the North -Western coast of Brazil. It is a white dessert with no vegetation. The unique factor of this national park is the amount of rain that falls on it, which surpasses 160 cm, 300 times more than that which falls in Sahara, North Africa. 

The water forms small ponds scattered all around this dessert, even 50 km from the coast. If you want to visit it  you can do so with a helicopter or even dip into the clean waters of any pond.!
