The town is not accessible to visitors remaining a military post, but the small oasis surrounded by tall palms will capture your imagination.

The dunes and the slowly advancing Saharan Desert, pose a threat to this area on a large scale. In May 2007, Algeria started to reconstruct a natural park in the heart of the desert.

Taghit National Park is a large park with an open-air museum with animals that live in peace to rest and relive the history of this region.

Large palm groves and the golden sand have been reported to have therapeutic properties to cure several pathologies, and a majestic and old palace ksar are among the many assets of this natural landscape with banks adorned with splendid palm groves.
