Green mountain village

If you set out on the Hoggar circuit, Hirafok will be among the most memorable village that you will pass. This village, near Oued Zerzaoua, is marked by houses made out of reeds. This is really an interesting place, out here in the centre of Sahara, mountains and a green village! But that is not all, it is here an interesting irrigation system: solar energy is used for lifting up water that is used for irrigation in the small but vital agricultural activity of Hirafok.

Eat and Sleep
Absolutely nothing, unless you get invited by locals (not all to likely except for a daytime meal).

Eat and Sleep
Nothing but your own transport. See section of Hoggar.
