Acacus Mountains in Libya - What a scenery!

Acacus Mountains in Libya - What a scenery!

Tadrart means 'mountain' in the native language of the area (Tamahaq language).

The Acacus Mountains have a large variation of landscapes, from differently coloured sanddunes to arches, gorges, isolated rocks and deep ravines (wadis). Major landmarks include the arches of Afzejare and Tin Khlega. Although this area is one of the most arid of the Sahara, there is vegetation, such as the medicinal Calotropis procera, and there are a number of springs and wells in the mountains.
