Region de l' Inchiri Things to Do: 6 reviews and 6 photos
Akjoujt is just a passage city between NKT and the city of Atar, 80km from Chinguetti.
Akjoujt was constructed in 1949, and its now more like a ghost town ever since the copper-mining centre closed in the end of the 80's. It seems the technical spending on the mining was just too much for the amount of copper actually digged.
Somehow in 1992 gold was found and a few bunch of australians could actually take a few dozens kilos of it per month until they went away.
Directions: 256km from NKT the capital.
