The Sahara Desert is the last place you’d expect to find snow. After all it is one of the driest and hottest regions of the world. It is the world’s largest hot desert and its more than 9 million square kilometers cover most of North Africa. As well as being one of the driest places in the planet, it’s one of the hottest temperatures here can reach more than 50 C (122 F).

But in a surreal turn of events to mark the end of an already surreal year, the small desert town of Ain Sefra in Algeria woke up and find that the red sand dunes had unexpectedly turned white. Here, you can see the children of this town are enjoy the rare day.

Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert because it was out of the people’s idea. It was a rare occurrence. It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of scenery. The red sand and the white ice creates a tasty look that you can see in this video. The snow stayed for about a day and melting starts the next day when the temperature raise high. It was a great day for the locals beside the Sahara.
