Destroyed spanish road
Old spanish road of Western Sahara
we are already inside morocco or better no mans land of western sahara. this area has lots of pirates that can rob you or kidnap you, last year a group of germans were kidnaped here and people asked for money to the german government.
you have 30km from the castle until you get the wall which separates the mine free or safe area with militaries from morocco.
Border with Morocco
This is the castle that stands right in the border with Morocco. From now on and along 30km (militar outpost) you have no mans land, with pirates and criminals, lots of land mines, destroyed roads...think twice about passing here, or at least bring a 4wd car, go by me!! we're alive i dont know how...
Blue UN stones land mine free
This are the stones painted by UN armed forces. This way is land mine free. don't go out of the marked tracks please. We had some problems because many of the UN way was actually inside sand, and with a small car already very tired from the long trip, we had some problems passing and some other ways had to be choosen, so we were lucky about the mines i guess.
Go for a short walk out side the city limits
you'll be able to enjoy Bir MOghrein far along with the mountains called Bir, which is a part of te towns name. someone tryed to explain me something about the name Bir and the town, but i couldnt understand.
chinese army was here
it seems many different armies where here to hepl protecting the area and also help to take some land mines away from the area.
Inside view of the castle
on the mauritanian map, wst from Bir MOghrein, you'll found a start saying is a point of interest. This is your point of interest.
landscape of the south
this is south of Bir Moghrein comming from the mountains of Rich. On the way can be found places with lots of sand.
Mountains of Bir
These are the mountains that surround the town of Bir Moghrein. Its funny to see how does all these northern town in mauritania grow near mountains... like fderik and zouerat, choum, atar...
