Natural Arches of Ahaggar National Park

Index Page 9 - In-Tehaq Area

In-Tehaq area is located a 30-minute jeep drive from the site of Tin-Abezeguine to the southeast. This is a splendid area of rock masses with a nice stretch of sand dune rising from the west side of the site. Visitors will find here a modern well with clear water in the shadow of a bunch of trees. Check with your guide/driver. This area is very sandy and driving through the area is difficult (except along the west side), so it is generally best to visit the area by foot with a day pack. Acess to the two significant arches found here can be done by the west side where it is easier to access with 4-wheel drive vehicle. In-Tehaq Arch (ALG-635) is located not far from the jeep tracks that skirt the west side and is visible from there in the distance. Do not confuse this area with In-Tehaq Arch (ALG-274) and In-Tehaq area in Tassili National Park. Also the name can be confused with In-Tehoq, a small area located at the bottom of Tassili tin-Rehroh in Ahaggar National Park. Satellite view.
