Tahat is the highest point of Ahaggar, the central core in a large composite of eroded volcanic crater plugs. These unusual formations rise suddenly from the vast Sahara desert. Despite its isolation, the area is becoming increasingly popular with tourists, and is surrounded by an unpaved road that takes four days to hike, and obviously much less time to drive. There is plenty of excellent rock climbing here.
