The topography features of the region east of the Nile are very different from those at the western desert. The region’s most prominent feature is the easterly chain of rugged mountains, the Red Sea hills which extend from the Nile valley eastward to the Gulf of Suez and the Red Sea this elevated region has a natural drainage pattern that rarely functions because of insufficient rainfall. It also has a complex of irregular, sharply cut Wadis that extended westward toward the Nile.
The eastern desert is generally isolated from the rest of the country. There is no oasis cultivation in the region because of the difficulty in sustaining any form of agriculture except for a few villages on the red sea coast. There are no permanent settlements. There are three major national parks and protectorates within the Red Sea and the eastern desert. Up in the north end of the cost there is the north islands protectorate, further south close, to Marsa Alam there is Wadi Al Jemal National Park, the third largest Wadi in the Eastern desert draining into the Red Sea, and one of the best vegetated. Last but not least Elba national Park is located in the southern eastern part of the eastern desert.
Eastern Desert is one of 3 main deserts in Egypt. It represents one fifth of the total area of Egypt.
