Shabikah Things to Do

  • Chebika Oasis

    The Chebika Oasis was nice because you had to walk a little to get there, unlike in Tamerza. However, there were kids pushing jewelry on us and a guide we didn't really need. The scenery is amazing though, and there is more to see than just the water.

    I was in Chebika in August, the weather was very hot, so these springs were a perfect place to relax and enjoy a swim.

    It was a surprise to see that, even so far in the desert as Shabikah, a lot of water can be found in this oasis. In Shabikah, the spring can be visited as well. A must see...

    In Shabikah, when climbing a littlle bit, you will notice that you can very well see where the water is present now: the palmtrees are growing on the track of the water.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Talk some shoes that allow you to climb trough the village and pass the mountain. Have a laugh when german ladies on high heels (oh yes, we've seen it) makes this same trip...

  • Warm water spring

    The water of this spring in the Chebika oasis reaches a 27° temperature and waters the whole oasis via some small canal.It is very pleasant having a walk in the oasis, along the cascade and climbing up the Atlas mountains with a beautiful view on the surrounding desert.
