Mhaireth is one of the largest oases in the Adrar region. Situated in an ouad (valley, river course), the oasis and the village of the same name are located about 30 km from Atar as the crow flies, as part of the municipality of Maaden in the department of Aoujeft. Mhaireth is much more extensive than, for example, the oasis of Terjit. The dimensions become quickly apparent to the visitor when he approaches the ouad from the east and first has a look from the rock elevation into the valley before he enters downhill. The picture is dominated by countless palm trees, the traditional tikits built from palm fronds, as well as dunes and rocky cliffs. In the south there are also grass and lake landscapes. The lakes reach a considerable size after the rainy season. In the center of the village there are still some mud buildings and the local mosque.
The oasis of Mhaireth is part of almost all our tours that lead to the Adrar, with all others there is the possibility of an additional visit. We combine a trip here with lunch in one of the local auberges. In addition to the Mauritanian obligatory tea and dates, a pool stay can also be realized, which offers the right cooling at lunchtime. And we show you what such a tikit looks like from the inside. By the way: In Mhaireth fantastic drone shots can be made.
