From the volcanic black chains of the Atakor to the spaces infinites of plateaus. Plane of Amadror and the salt-mine, from centuries one of the few riches of the Tuareg; Iherir, characteristic complex of villages with the typical huts, where the time seems to be stopped.

Jabbaren, relief of sandstone cupolas eroded from the wind; deep erg of Admer and erg Kilian, along the corridors between high golden sand hills. With jeeps or on foot one look deepened to the human and natural ambient of the Sahara, which name means in Arabe Empty and Truth. [Continue itinerary]
