Choum -> Touajil -> Fderik -> Zouerat +-250km

This is a very rough journey. Usually local 4x4 make the shortest and fast way through the train tracks where they hit their tyres against the protective objects that exist on the tracks preventing vehicles to drive there. They still do it and get their tyres flat of course. if you are careful and whenever you see one of this protection you can drive out of the train tracks. Also advisable is to get out when you see a train…hehehe, but maybe fast cos you can get stuck in sand on the way out, this can happen also with 4x4 of course. The train takes 10kms to stop…hehehe, as it’s the biggest train of the world.

On the picture you can see the iron mountains of Fderik.
