Exceptional exploration of the Tadjélahine plateau with Tafassaset art Voyages, specialist in rock art and the Sahara !
Between Djanet and Ilizi, there is a little-known, secret, little-visited Tassili: the Tadjélahine plateau. However, thanks to the new road connecting these two cities, it is now easy and quick to access.
The landscapes there are sublime: immense expanses of rocky peaks, in the open sky against which the ocher dunes of the edge of the Ajjer crash.
Above all, this plateau hides in its stone forests some of the most beautiful paintings in the Sahara. It is an important rock-hewn region, equal to the tassili of Tamrit and Séfar: Three of the rock shelters of Tadjélahine are eponymous sites: the caves of Ihéren, of Tahilahi, and the “tafoni” of Tin Abanière. The perfection, the originality of these paintings, their great concentration led us to think that we were here, at the source of two of the main pictorial styles of the central Sahara: the Ihéren-Tahilahi style and the Abaniora style.
Henri Lhote was not mistaken since he came in 1970 with his team of painters and photographers to survey the shelters of Iheren and Tahilahi. Did he not write: “Of all that I was able to see in Tassili and elsewhere in the world, in terms of prehistoric rock art, this shelter (Iheren) seems to me to contain the most beautiful images. I am so amazed by their splendor that I cannot take my eyes off the wall and the joy of contemplating such works raises in me a wave of immense gratitude towards these stone artists” (Towards others Tassili, 1976).
For a week, it is on a camel trek that the riches of the Tadjélahine plateau will be revealed: you will take the time to cross the plateau, to discover its secrets, its beauties, and to familiarize yourself with its many sites. Among others: Tazega Mellet, Tan Kadiwin, Ihéren, Tin Abanière, Akraren Tan Toduft, Tiherarnin, Imerda, Tadrast-Timarasaoussi, Tahilahi, Tasakarot, Issalamen…
In this magical place, nights under the stars will be even more astonishing !
