Tamanrasset, the capital of Ahaggar.

Tamanrasset travelogue picture
Capital of the Tuareg world and a destination that I had heard much about from overlanders way back when I was still at school. Laid back and with charm.

Favourite spots:
Marche Nigerien or Marche Centrale. Just wandering around the town has a real charm.

The Nigerien market is on the far side of the oued from town.

What's really great:
Late afternoon in the middle of town. The view from Hadriane. The warmth fo the welcome.

Accommodations:
Gite Saharienne - not the cheapest place in town but good food and good company.

Other recommendations:

Top of Hadriane. Hadriane
sits just outside Tamanrasset.
I believe that is slightly to the
south. It's quite easy to ascend
and the views are great.

This shows the most difficult part of the ascent
