Rescue in the desert. If you want to know what meaning a life-giving place can have in the middle of the Sahara, you should come to Terjit in the heat of summer. Admittedly, it is more pleasant in the main season between November and April, when the heat is less muggy and the oasis stream in Terjit becomes a river. But don't worry: bathing is possible all year round. Terjit is located on the western edge of the Adrar Plateau, less than an hour's drive from Atar. Situated in a gorge protected from the sun on three sides by high rock walls, Mauritania's most beautiful oasis has been able to develop here. Among bees, date palms and hidden shady spots, tea breaks, water fun and even climbing are possible. The nearby hostels offer sleeping facilities and invite you to enjoy sumptuous meals with a dreamlike view of the settlement and the horizon. Sunset dinner at the end of the world. In front of the oasis is a village whose inhabitants often spend the day under shady date palms. Therefore, it may well happen that you are invited to tea on your way through Terjit and strike up a conversation with the inhabitants. Incidentally, the desert oasis of Terjit is by no means only a multi-faceted place to be, but also historically significant. Unsurprisingly, due to its peculiarity, the place was the site of religious ceremonies, weddings and even coronations of princes in the past.
