DEAD VLEI

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Dead Vlei est une cuvette d'argile blanche située près du célèbre salar de Sossusvlei, dans le désert de Namib, en Namibie. Son nom signifie « le marais mort » (de l'anglais dead, mort, et l'afrikaans vlei, lac ou marais dans une vallée entre les dunes).

Dead Vlei est entouré par les dunes de sable les plus élevées du monde, dont la plus haute qui atteint entre 300 et 400 mètres

Les troncs des arbres morts, qui sont estimés à environ 900 ans, sont désormais de couleur noire du fait que le soleil intense les a brûlés. Bien qu'il ne soit pas pétrifié, leur bois ne se décompose pas car il est trop sec.
