Tibesti Mountains, Tibesti Region

#6 of 13 in Things to do in Chad
Check out Tibesti Mountains, spreading across a massive area of untouched landscape. Travel between various rock formations that look like artistically sculpted statues; some of them hide ancient paintings, so keep your eyes peeled. Climb the highest peak of 3,445 m (11,302 ft), or visit the five volcanos and their deep craters. Most of the ground in the area is tough and covered with dry lava, volcanic deposits, sands, and rocks. From time to time you'll find small oases and settlements, as well as animals roaming freely across the area.
