A World Heritage Site in the southeast part of Algeria, Tassili N'Ajjer National Park fascinates with its unusual geology and rock art. Journey through the mountain range around the golden rock formations, where illustrations engraved into the stone date back to the Neolithic era. Various sandstone formations will surround you, forming arches due to erosion in the area. The water's properties and density of the sandstone supports a much richer vegetation than other nearby areas; look for Saharan cypress and myrtle. Put Tassili N'Ajjer National Park into our Illizi itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Illizi.
