Tamerza Canyon, Tozeur

4.3
#3 of 15 in Nature in Tunisia
Visit an abandoned old town and admire water cascades and springs in Tamerza Canyon, the largest mountain oasis in Tunisia. Surrounded by steep and wild areas, this gorge stretches for 3 km (1.8 mi) with distinct, round, layered shapes and stark color contrasts. Small waterfalls cascade from the cracks in reddish rock. You can hike through the canyon or take a donkey. There are two campsites on the spot, plus just a few basic eateries, so bring food with you. Put Tamerza Canyon on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tozeur driving holiday planning website .
