Mighty, jagged silhouettes announce the entrance to an enchanting world of rock and sandstone. Acacus is not only a mountain range in Southwest Libya, it is also an almost fairytale-like region, a place of silence and contemplation. However, the landscape does not embrace visitors with open arms. The mountains can only be explored with four-wheel drive vehicles and experienced local drivers.

The leg of the journey through the Wadi Taschunt travels past a magnificent natural arch of which there are many more in the Acacus. The Tadrart Acacus area is around 50 kilometres long and up to 50 kilometres wide. It is a mighty rock and endless desert landscape that forms a natural border between Libya and Algeria.

Scattered artifacts and magnificent rock paintings indicate the existence of a past epoch that was discovered in the middle of the 19th century. The discovery of the Acacus rock paintings in 1850 was made by German explorer and scientist, Heinrich Barth.

The Guelta Taschunt is famous for its extremely narrow canyon that can only be entered on foot, a walk that is well worthwhile. Surrounded by high, steep rock walls and separated from the outside world, those who come here often experience a strange and sometimes even oppressive sensation.

The next highlight of our journey through the desert mountain region of Acacus is about to commence, a visit to the King of the Tuareg. The 94 year old king welcomes us and proudly demonstrates how the traditional head dress of the Tuareg should be worn.

The desert mountains of ACACUS are far more than just a fascinating landscape whose natural splendor and remoteness are the main attractions. The rocks in the dried out river valleys are like a historic picture book that provides us with a remarkable insight into what was once a long-lost culture of the Sahara!
