Introduction

Located in the remote southwestern area of Libya, Ghat was once a major terminal point on the Trans-Saharan trade route. It is an oasis located between the Tassili N'Ajjer plateau and the Tadrart Acacus mountain range. Travellers visit Ghat to witness the pre-historic rock paintings nearby in the Tadrart Acacus mountain range. The beauty of the nearby desert is also a draw-card.
