Henchir Hamrouni Chebika Things to Do
At the top of the steps you have to climb the rock a little further - but make the effort its well worth it for the views in any direction(pics 1 and 2). Even at this height there were purple flowers in the rock which added a lovely splash of colour to the scene. (Pic 3) Notice towards the top of the rock the statue of a mountain goat.

I hate to have to cover the same ground twice - and some of those rocks were a little dodge, glad I had my trekki sandals on , so even though it was quite hot by now the only option was to climb the steps near the pool to go up and over the hill and back down to the village. The round trip takes about 40 mins if including stopping at the falls for pics etc...so it doesn't take too long and was a good chance to stretch those legs out too before getting back into our land cruisers.
Wonderful views all around to enjoy.
Well the views were mesmerising but we had to reluctantly head back to the village. To do this you have to climb up to a narrow rock pass - very narrow and glad I hadn't had lunch yet! (pic 1) Squeeze through this gap and head back down to the village below you (pic 2) - good views too from here and really glad to have made the effort for it. If you are able make the round trip - I don't think any particular way is better - they each have their ups and downs!Related to:
Henchir Hamrouni Chebika Favorites
Favorite thing: The old settlement of Chebika, deserted nowadays, is situated right next to the water spring which give life to the palm trees and local people. This people here live in the extreme life conditions with the daily temperature which rises over 50 C degrees, and yet no rooftops on the houses. There must be a reson why but I didnt find it out:Related to:
