Berber hilltop village

Jadu, Libya

Jadu is an interesting little village, situated at a hilltop, but with a surrounding landscape far more arid than what is the case with many other Nafusa Mountains' destinations.
There are very few trees here, and agriculture is close to non-existant. The traditional village has lost much of its charm, as it is often in shambles, and also mixed up with modern buildings.
Jadu has a museum with exhibits of local culture.

Eat and Sleep
Jadu has a very basic hotel, which decent but somewhat overpriced. There are a few basic restaurants around town.

Buses connecting Jadu to larger towns, but there are also erratic buses to other small settlements in this part of the Nafusa Mountains.
