The moonscape of AIN CHARCHARA

Published : 06-04-2019
At the foot of the Dahar mountains in the Tunisian South, the incredible mineral landscape of Ain Charchara looks just like what you expect to find on the moon. Strange forms, big mushrooms, canyons in miniature, bumps rubbed smooth by the wind as far as the eye can see…
Over millennia, chemical and geological processes have shaped this spectacular terrain with various colour shades and rust mottles. 

This amazing scenery is located in Ksar Ghariani, midway between Tataouine and Ben Guerdane, not far from the village of Samar in the South-East of Tunisia.
