The largest monolith in Africa, Ben Amera, is also worth the trip. With its 633 meters height it is only surpassed by the Australian Uluru and Mount Augustus, whereby it is speculated that it could even surpass them, if one would only look under the sand. Ben Amera is located about 60 km west of Choum and is visible during the day from the iron ore train in the north. 7 km away lies the smaller Ben Aïsha, where there are dozens of impressive works of art and stone sculptures since 1999. 16 artists were allowed to immortalize themselves in stone on the theme of "peace" at that time. By the way, the relationship between the two monoliths is part of an interesting myth, which also explains why Ben Amera still has a "bump" on its "head" today. We will be happy to acquaint you with the old stories on site. There are no roads leading to Ben Amera. With an experienced driver, however, the trip can be made off-road without any problems. It is a good idea to combine your stay with a visit to Choum and the train ride to Nouadhibou. Wild camping at the foot of the mountains is absolutely legal. As always, transportation and meals are provided in our tours. By the way: Ben Aïsha is only 4 km away from the border to Western Sahara.
