Paradise Found In Extinct Volcano

Waw an Namus is an extinct volcano located deep in the Sahara desert of South Libya, one of the most captivating and remote places on earth. What makes Waw an Namus so special are the three salt lakes that form an oasis in its 2.5 mile (4km) wide crater, as well as the 12 miles (20 km) of dark-black deposit of ash that surrounds the volcano and its oasis, making it one of the most beautiful and contrastingly colorful sights you can imagine.

Imagine being stranded in the desert and coming across this huge oasis. Not that I plan on that happening, but it would be a beautiful (last) sight to see.
