Erg Tifernine - Algeria
 
Hello,

Does someone ever ride in the erg tifernine in Algeria ?
Any picture to share ?

We drove around the spur in 2002. Very nice area, but all my pix are scratched slides.
One of the best images is this one!

I know Wolfgang Seel who used to work at Darrs in Munich did a few trips through that Erg on KTM Adventures. And the GE Oriental and many more sand seas. I tell you, these Germans are tough as nails!

... very chalenging dunes, few Gassi, step and very high dunes (more than 100m) - the most difficult Erg in Algeria imho in particular for cars. Absolute a fantastic experience! I only drove it in the outer zone, had much too much respect to penetrate deeper. Swiss colleagues travelled there in 2002 or 2003, had to abandon 2 4x4 and had a very hard time to go for their recovery with Algerian cars and drivers.

Do you think it will be easiest in bike ?
I have heard it's the highest dunes in all sahara, dunes can reach 500 meters. It is true ?
Any picture to have an idea of the dunes ?

A couple of photos looking west towards the erg - pretty inhospitable terrain.
