Once on the "Tassili" (plateau), the landscape is almost flat but nevertheless with occasional hills if rocks such as on the first photo. The path is a narrow sandyish strip and actually, there is not one path but dozen of path, a network of path! You cannot rely on following the path but Pierre knows very well the place and leads us eyes closed (not really!).

In the background (second photo) there appears a strange landscape, like a city with skyscrapers. As we get closer (third photo) and closer (fourth photo) we now have one of the Tassili N'Ajjer's typical landscape with what is called a ghost city and is in fact a wealth of tall pinnacles carved by erosion and tightly standing high.
