Snow falls in the Sahara desert

The red sands covering the small desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, were coated with snow.

Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata captured the moment that one of the driest and hottest regions of the world became a winter wonderland for the first time in 37 years.

Ain Sefra, which is known as ‘The Gateway to the Desert’, last saw the white stuff on February 18, 1979, when a snow storm lasted just half an hour.
Karim said: ‘Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert.

‘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.’
