Chebika, Tunisia

Chebika belongs to the collection of unlikely desert oases of the mountains north of the great Tunisian chotts. Least famous, Chebika offers perhaps the most effective and dramatic experience among them.
Chebika is best experienced before you head on to Mides and Tamerza, after crossing the Chott el Gharsa, which most of the year just looks like wide barren field. Where the mountains rise, Chebika lies. Most of the year it is so exposed to the sun that it once was known as Qasr el-Shams, Castle of the Sun.
