Forzagha Arch, Libya
NABSQNO 32R 665280 2730960 Libya

FORZHAGA ARCH is the most spectacular in the Akakus Plateau. The arch is located in the southwest corner of Libya near the border with Algeria, about 20 miles east of the Tuareg Village of Ghat, near the junction of Oued Anchal and Oued Tanchalt ("oued" is the local name for "wash"). There are no roads or trails to the arch, and hiring a guide is required to visit the area. For scale, note the two figures under and just behind the arch. Ray Millar measured the span at 104 feet and the height at 143 feet with a laser rangefinder. Photo by Verene Jordi.
