Really impressed. Next time will stay longer than 1 day. It’s worth to meet sunrise and sunset. The stars in desert are unbelievably close to earth. Don’t worry, you would feel safe there.

Should have spent the night. If you do choose one of the places to spend the night, make sure your sleeping tent allows you to see the stars. Also, make sure it does not cater only to tour buses.
