One of the hottest and driest parts of the Sahara Desert, Libyan Sahara encompasses 1.1 million sq km (420,000 sq mi). Because of the harsh environment, hire a guide to take you on an adventure tour through the region, which features dunes as tall as 512 m (1,680 ft). Excurions will require camping, and you'll see ancient cities, religious venues, old mosques, and other ancient sites as you traverse this arid region.

  • With the opening of tourism in Libya in 2000 its Sahara experienced a decade of tourism boom until the death of Colonel Gaddafi in 2011 garnering more than positive acclaim everywhere despite the poor organization of the local T.O. . The rock art sites of Acacus, Mathendusc, the oases of Ghat and Ghadames, the pearl of the desert, the Ramla dei Dawada among the dunes of Ubari, the volcano of Wau En Namus are some of the most famous and frequented places. Travelling to the Libyan Sahara is always a journey full of culture, humanity, fascinating and unforgettable for the places crossed where it feels infinitely small where everything goes beyond the limits to which we are accustomed to confront. It is a journey that must be prepared psychologically and physically, always leave in good health. Unfortunately today it is the whole area off limits situation that, paradoxically puts him safe from the uncontrollable and heavy vandalism suffered by several tourists and Western Saharan travelers proved disrespectful of its reality with acts and thefts , species of lithic finds. His atouts are the calm, the simple that pre-visit as well as an unlimited opportunity for breathtaking photo shoots. Date inserted to be able to publish since I have made dozens of trips throughout the Libyan Sahara some with the Mission Mori .
