Difficult to choose a day that stands out from the others, but if I had to do it maybe I would choose this third one in the tour by Tassili Tadrart (although the afternoon of the previous day would be at the same level of landscape and sensations)
We start walking from the camp of the 2nd night next to the spectacular dunes of Moul N'Aga. We will walk through dune landscapes for about 7kms in which it is difficult to advance through the beauty of the landscape that forces you to stop at every step you take. We go up and down small dunes, although there is a higher one that is a little more demanding, although it climbs without any problem, and in each rise we discover a new horizon more suggestive than the previous one. So we arrive almost without realizing where the cars are waiting to follow the route inside them and reach a large rock at the foot of the dune of Quan Zawtan, where we will eat. My girl and I did not think of anything else but to climb the dune, and the dune deceives because it seems to be closer and smaller than it is. And to top it off there is a good stretch of unstable soft sand before reaching the edge of the dune so the traffic is uncomfortable. The edge itself is sinking with each step you take, so we decided to desist from following it and go down the direct way since the rest of the teammates are waiting for us to eat and it does not compensate too much the effort we have to do to travel said dune.
After lunch we approach by car to visit a spectacular arc, then visit several coats of paintings and prints. We then see a broken arch, and then we will visit a very curious formation called "Takenessit" (the hedgehog), which is a whimsical mixture between hedgehog and pig (although for these cultures this second animal is not very suggestive)
And as dessert of the day we went to where we would camp the third night at the foot of the spectacular dunes of Tin Merzouga, which we went up to say goodbye to the day and see a beautiful sunset, accompanied by a group of Algerian boys , although that part was recorded on another track.

Salida campamento en dunas de Moul N´Aga. Inicio de excursión de 7kms.

We start the beautiful walk of 7 kms by places of dunes to which more precious. Along with the walk of 11kms from the previous day in the afternoon are undoubtedly the most emotional and precious moments of the entire tour of the tassili.

Subida a la gran duna.

Hard climb to the edge of Quan Zawtan. The sand in the high section is very soft and very unstable so it is very hard and hard to transit through this dune. I did not record the first section from the place where the camp was set up for lunch.

Cuerda de la duna. Cuesta llegar allí!

Very hard the final stretch to reach the rope because of the instability of the sand. And the rope itself is not comfortable for the same reason.
