A 125 km itinerary to be covered on foot, in the company of camels and camel drivers, which from Chinguetti will allow you to discover the most fascinating corners of the Adrar, until you reach the oasis of Terjit. A route for good walkers who wish to confront the immensity of the largest desert in the world.
A trek to discover the heart of the Adrar, starting from the fascinating caravan town of Chinguetti and gradually leaving behind the marvellous Saharan dunes to enter another type of desert. No longer boundless expanses of sand, but rocks, scree, plateaus and surreal canyons interspersed with sporadic and beautiful palm groves in the ouad and guelta. until you reach the “pearl of all oases”, the hot spring of Terjit. A true paradise that will repay the efforts of the journey, the ideal goal of an experience that is not only naturalistic but also, and above all, introspective.
