It’s highly unusual to see snow in Sahara. As a matter of fact, it hadn’t snowed for 37 years. However, on December 19th, snow fell in Algerian town of Ain Sefra. Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata was there to take magnificent photos with his camera
“Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert,” he said. “It is such a rare occurrence. It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of photos. The snow stayed for about a day and has now melted away.”
This is only the second time in living memory that snow has fallen on the Sahara. The first time was in February 1979, also in Algeria.
