Car tourists

If you head north from the famous dunes of Erg Chebbi to Erfoud, Er Rachidia and beyond, you can set off from Merzouga by taking the shortcut number R702. You will drive through a desolate stony desert plain, which is bridged in several places by low mountain ridges. These geologically interesting massifs hide a lot of fossils, so you will also see shops and searchers here. You can interrupt the journey to the north on one of these ridges and stretch your body a little

We start the walk in places where the road breaks through the ridge of fossils.

Fossil trade

The starting point for a walk is definitely not to be missed, because there is an unsurprisingly large fossil trade

Ascent to the fossil ridge

The ascent to the fossil ridge is simple, basically directly behind the nose upwards.
