From the south of Gourara, opens the Touat, between the arid plateau of Tadmaït and the plain of Tidikelt. This region is at the crossroads of many communication routes in the Sahara, in particular the road to Mali. Huge white plateau, broken by the oases which adopt the same ocher as Timimoun, it is in the heart of the central Sahara, a veritable furnace in summer, that you find yourself.
