Gouvernorat de Tozeur Things to Do

  • Mides - Next Stop Algeria

    A short distance on the other side of the canyon, beyond the shops, there was a good place for taking pictures though we had to make our way past even more souvenir stalls and a cafe where a lot of chilled out locals were lying out. They paid little attention to us. Before visiting Mides I hadn't been expecting much, but wow, it was beautiful. I...

  • Cafe, Souvenir Shops & Fantastic Views

    On the far side of the canyon were souvenir shops, a cafe, and steps leading down to the canyon. We were the only visitors at the time though there were about 3-4 souvenir shops selling mostly the same old stuff. From this side of town you got a really good idea of the layout of the abandoned village. The oasis surrounds much of the village on this...

  • Mides - Walking the Abandoned Village

    Just beyond the cafe lie the ruins of the abandoned village. We walked through the ruins up beyond the village and looked down into the canyon, which is over 3km long and completely surrounds the village. We then walked to the other side of the village where the familiar picture of the canyon, as seen in the English Patient, presents itself. One of...

  • Mides

    After leaving Tamerza the roads became a lot quieter. At the turn off a couple of kilometres outside Tamerza, one road, which lead to customs at the Algerian border had two policemen keeping an eye on things, while the left turn went to Mides. The ploice stared at us quite strongly as we drove past. It was quite exciting getting this close to...

  • From Chebika to Tamerza to Mides

    Tamerza is the next stop after Chebika though we decided to visit Mides first and return to Tamerza later for lunch as it was the only one of the towns with a restaurant! Tamerza is about 13 km north of Chebika though it takes a long time to complete the journey as the road climbs steeply about 5km after Chebika. Some of the views here are...

  • Chebika walk - The highest Point

    We retraced our steps to the lake and took the steps which reached to the highest point on the walk where again the views were excellent. The views of the abandoned old town were espcially good as we were looking directly down upon it. We followed the path back past the statue of the mountain goat and went through the old town back to the shops.

  • Views of Chebika

    The main path through the gorge continued left of the lake and up along the steps build into the rock but we decided to climb to the right where nobody seemed to be going. This was well worth it as the views were amazing. You could see back across the Chott, down into the new town and all across the landscape. It would have been nice to continue...

  • Chebika - The Lake

    After crossing the stream the path continued on to a very pretty lake. It was even more crowded here that at the waterfall as it was the turning point of the walk where the people who had taken the path along the ridge above converged with those of us on the path below. Thanks to some nifty camera work by Ruth we took some pictures in which we...

  • Chebika - Down to the Waterfall

    From the abandonded village there are two paths you can take, either up onto the ridge or down into the gorge. As the path is circular it makes no difference which one you do. Both paths were quite busy with tourists. We decided to climb down to the gorge. The views were great but would have much preferred had it been quieter. At the bottom of the...

  • Chebika

    After crossing the Chott el Gharsa we arrived at Chebika, about an hour or so after leaving Tozuer. The new town of Chebika is what you see first and it's nothing much to write home about. Settlements developed here after floods in 1969 destoryed much of the old town. It's this abandoned old town, build into the side of the mountain, and...

  • Tozeur

    Tozeur is the main town of the region. Hence it has the most options for accommodation and public transport though it has also become a bit of a tourist spot, with a number of big hotels being built on the south-west side of town near the oasis. We based ourselves in Tozeur for exploring the region and as we were visiting in March the number of...

  • nefta: sights

    Nefta's top sight is the huge fresh water spring, which now has been turned into a sort of basin (or pool). It's inside a quilte large natural depression near the wide palmeraie and it looks very little natural, yet is it. Imagine the happiness, in the past, to find so much water after a long (and dry9 desert crossing!

  • Tamerza: sights

    To be so remote Tamerza is full of interesting sights. First of all the abandoned berber village... a ghost village... no one was there when we visited, we had the place to ourselves. From there we went on to see the palmeraie: it's really impressive how they make use of the land. The palmeraie works on two levels: date palms high up and at ground...

  • Chebika: sights

    The reason to visit Chebika is the old Berber village and its rugged surrounding mountains. Climb up the side of the mountain, and visit the abandonedberber village and its mosque - then continue uphill and reach the bottom of a cliff. The views are great - but it's nothing like what you'll discovered once you'll go through the little gap of the...

  • Mides: sights

    There are not many sights in Mides... actually there are only two: the little white mosque and the canyon. The canyon remains my fondest memory, mainly because there's a path that leads you down to it (do walk down: it's quite something to be in the middle of this gorge): I'm afraid that there's no path going up from the other side. Why? Well,...

  • Tozeur: sights

    There are 2 must-see sights in Tozeur: the Dar Cherait Museum and the Medina.The museum, unlike other museums - is set in an authentic old Tunisian home of a middle class family - well, more like a palace actually: middle class people used to live more luxuriously than we do -and you'll see it in the furniture and decorations.The Medina shows a...
