Tamerza is the largest mountain oasis in Tunisia located north of the salt lakes. It is a beautiful destination to walk through a grand canyon and to explore an abandoned old town.
Tozeur is a common starting point for many travelers setting off to explore the oasis towns in southern Tunisia. The distance between Tozeur and Tamerza is about 70km. It is quite convenient for travelers to visit both Chebika and Tamerza on a single journey. From Chebika, you can reach Tamerza by traveling on a long windy road. There is an open area along the way which makes a good spot to stretch your legs and to take some photos of the beautiful mountainous landscape close to the Algerian border.
