Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos
In the Maghreb, a “Chott” is a large depression where water gathers and evaporates, leaving a deposit of salts. Chott El-Djérid is the largest and spreads in Southern Tunisia on 120 km from East (Kébili ) to West (Hézoua). It is 5,000 square kilometers. In Winter and Spring, the chott is covered by a thin layer of water and looks almost like a lake. At the end of Spring, when this picture was taken, the chott looks like mud, from greyish to brownish. It is only later that more water evaporates and salt crystallizes.
