  • Very beautiful place to see sunset and sunrise and very beautiful mountains , it's 2700m altitude . I recommend it and if i have another chance I'll visit it again.
  • it is and it will be always the most sacred and spiritual place I have ever visited. At the Assekrem you can find an old church of Cristian believers , the fathers there are very hospital and nice! if reach the top of the mountain you will feel the real cold weather of the Sahara when it is -5 during it nights. If you want to enjoy the best sunrise or sunset in the World, Assekrem for sure will be your first destination. Just bring you-self and enjoy your stay at the cold mountains
