the searing temperature even at nighttime because the place is barren, with only a few trees

standing – you can even call it treeless.

What to Expect:

Falcon, eagles, and other small birds

There are barns where you can interact with camels, sheep, goats, and donkeys. But you need to seek the permission of the owners since private individuals own the barns.
