The Sahara desert has a variety of land features, but is most famous for the
sand dune fields that are often depicted in movies. The dunes can reach
almost 600 feet (183 meters) high but they cover only about 15 percent of
the entire desert. Other topographical features include mountains, plateaus,
sand- and gravel-covered plains, salt flats, basins and depressions.

The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world, and the third largest
desert behind Antarctica and the Arctic, which are both cold deserts. The
Sahara is one of the harshest environments on Earth, covering 3.6 million
square miles (9.4 million square kilometers), nearly a third of the African
continent, about the size of the United States (including Alaska and
Hawaii). The name of the desert comes from the Arabic word ṣaḥrāʾ, which
means "desert."
