Idehan Murzuq

 
Idehan Murzuq The astonishing Saharan sand sea of Idehan Murzuq rises dramatically from the plateau of Wadi Berjuj. This is a place of astounding, glorious, breathtaking natural beauty; picture the most spectacular landscape of sand dunes you can imagine this is it, and yet so much more! The Murzuq consists of wave upon wave of extravagantly shaped dunes, some as high as 200-300 meters, which span 35,000 square kilometers, or roughly the size of Switzerland. With the sun low in the sky the twilight bathes each angled dune face with its own soft, subtle hue, playing tricks of distance and perspective on your eyes. If you see nothing else of interest during a visit to Libya, these few moments would make the whole trip worthwhile. ...
 

Al Qatrun

 
Al Qatrun Al Qatrun, little more than a desert village with one filling station and a Niger consulate is your last stop on your way to Niger or to Chad.

Kufra is an oasis based on enormous underground water reservoirs. While it once was started large expansion schemes for the region, the economy in it has made the Libyan governments turn to the unique Great Man-Made River. Great Man-Made River is going to bring water through pipelines from Kufra to the coastal areas. Only a strong economy as the Libyan could afford a plan like this, but the whole thing seems to become far more expensive than once planned. Kufra is also the starting point for a Sahara crossing to Chad to Ounianga. This is not an easy tr...

It has the oldest masjed (mosque) in the western north African region with its unique style of architecture with rooms that are naturally conditioned .
