Travel to Bechar

The Bechar Province of Algeria consists mostly of uninhabitable landscapes. Dry sand dunes and the well-known Erg Er Raoui and Western Erg are located in this province. Even though there are some areas that can provide some grazing for livestock, the lack of surface water does not allow large scale agriculture. Most of the small towns within the province are located within or around the Saoura Valley, where oases provide water for grain and date palm farming. These towns and villages are supported by the nomadic tribes of the region. In the past Taghit was the main tourism destination of the province, but it has been superseded by Bechar.
