Chebika may be crowded with tourists but it's a beautiful place nonetheless. The old town was abandoned after huge floods in the 1960’s and a new settlement began nearby.

The remains of the old town lie in a beautiful location halfway up a gorge . Nearby, a trail begins leading down into the gorge. The walk follows a stream to its source and the scenery along the route is lovely. The trail is overcrowded with tourists most of the time but if you get here early in the day it’s not so bad.

At the end of the trail you can continue up to the top of the gorge from where there are fantastic views over the old and new town and of the Chott e-Gharsa in the distance.
