Ramdane, Algeria – Level 1

FavoriteLoadingClick here if you like this story


Last summer my friends and I decided to visit a beautiful place in the Tamanrasset province called Assekrem.

Assekrem is part of the Hoggar Mountain range and it is located about 2000 km south of the capital Algiers. Its height is 1800 m above sea level.

We didn’t have a car so we hired one for this journey. We stayed there only one week and that cost us 350 euros. We ate the traditional Mella bread cooked under hot sand.

We learnt that there was an old Catholic man who lived in Assekrem for years. It was a really fantastic place. I can’t forget it.
