Chebika

CountryTunisia
Destination typeFilm site, natural wonder

Chebika is an oasis that lies at the foot of the Djebel el Negueb mountains. It was once a Roman outpost, but later became a mountain refuge for the Berber people. Only several hundred people live in this city today. Many scenes of the popular movies Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and The English Patient were filmed in this area.

Chebika is located about 50 kilometers away from Tozeur, which is a common starting point for tourists to depart from Tozeur on 4×4 vehicles to Chebika. Upon arriving in Chebika, local guides can take you on a 40-minute walk to a waterfall. Take time to marvel at the river flowing from the rocks and watering the palms. It is simply amazing to see the clear blue water within the mountains.

After a climb up the mountain, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view overlooking the mountain, the oasis, and the Chott El Jerid salt flat.

It is no wonder that Chebika is a popular hiking area. Advanced hikers may also choose to hike across several mountains while living in tents overnight.
