Adventurers trekking up one of the many dunes near Sossusvlei

There are several massive dunes near the iconic Sossusvlei, and hiking to the top of these dunes is a wonderful way to get amazing panoramic views of the famous vlei (a shallow minor lake, mostly of a seasonal or intermittent nature) and its surroundings.
