ALG-271, Mano Dayak Arch, undefined area. 20 meter height (estimated). GPS 32Q 695207 2652670. The classic one week tour of Tadrart Region passes not so far from this arch. The span can be viewed from several spots along the tracks. However, very few persons take the time to visit it and still fewer climb up to it. The arch is located near the head of a side pocket of ridge rock. The author bivouaced at the bottom of the arch and climbed carefully to the opening via the south side. Mano Dayak (1950-1995), a Tuareg leader from Niger, was an eager supporter of the Tuareg (Targuia) culture.
