Cruzamos el chott el jerid en coche, desde tozeour hasta douz

Cruzamos el Chott El Jerid en coche, desde Tozeour hasta Douz. Mientras lo cruzamos pudimos ver espejismos en la carretera ya que era mediodía y un día muy caluroso. Aunque cuando lo visitamos apenas había agua en los laterales, ya que como nos comentaron los locales apenas había llovido durante el año, el paisaje era impresionante. De golpe te podías encontrar tú solo en medio de la inmensidad del Chott. La mejor época para verlo es después o durante la época de lluvias (normalmente, de diciembre a marzo), ya que si las lluvias son abundantes se puede curzar la carretera del Chott rodeado de agua por todas partes. Tristemente, nosotros no pudimos verlo pero disfrutamos igual del lugar, ya que te deja sin palabras. Te conviertes en una pequeña mota de polvo comparado con si inmensidad. Además, a parte de los típicos espejismos en la carretera (parece que haya agua), también se pueden observar en el Chott. En él parece que un grupo de personas se muevan en caravana, unos seguidos de otros.

A stop in chott el jerid

South of Tunisia and the Sahara desert trail we found a huge desert. It wasn't a sand dessert, but rather one made of salt. Chot El Jerid extends dozens of kilometers and we crossed it through a long, straight road. At one point we stopped on a "strategic" path at a souvenir stall (mostly desert roses), in the middle of nowhere. I was struck by these strange, yet cheerful services in contrast to that remote and lonely place. A worn down, destroyed boat shows that this salt desert located in southern Tunisia was navigable. Depending on the time of year, the place is flooded by the rains. The salt creates strange light effects. It was dawn and I couldn't miss the opportunity to try to reflect on the beauty of that moment.

One of the best trips i´ve made

One of the best trips I've made, all of Tunisia, bus, lots of miles in 7 days. This salt lake, which is dry,where you can see mirages, like in the movies. There was nothing, but it was lovely, the boat is strategically placed and gives a touch of color to the picture. I really enjoyed this country, especially the landscapes.

Cycling along the chotte el jerid

Chotte el Jerid is a large salt lake that is located in the central-west Tunisia. And 'crossed in the middle by a road from which you can admire the amazing scenery for their uniqueness. This helps the bike to fully enjoy every meter, and if you decide to ride in the early morning you will also have the advantage of being almost the only ones on the road, and to photograph the mix of colors in the sky at sunrise. This place has also become famous in the 70s after that there were some scenes of the Star Wars saga, and indeed those of Chotte el Jerid are lunar landscapes ... really! To think that a little further on is the Grand Erg, or the Sahara Desert, two scenarios are so different and wonderful close together. It must be said that the road that cuts through the Chotte el Jerid is about sixty miles long and there are many stops along it, so it is good to ride at a good pace, or be equipped to drink and a snack. In any case, the road is not particularly inclines and even the less fit will go into no more than three hours.

In bici lungo lo chotte el jerid

Chotte el Jerid è un grande lago salato che si trova nella zona centro-occidentale della Tunisia. E' attraversato nel mezzo da una strada dalla quale si possono ammirare dei paesaggi incredibili per la loro unicità. In questo la bicicletta aiuta a gustare appieno ogni metro, e se decidete di pedalare al mattino presto avrete anche il vantaggio di essere quasi gli unici sulla strada, e di fotografare il mix di colori del cielo al sorgere del sole.
Questo luogo è inoltre divenuto famoso dopo che negli anni '70 vi sono state girate alcune scene della saga Guerre Stellari, e in effetti quelli dello Chotte el Jerid sono paesaggi davvero...lunari!
Pensare che poco più avanti si trova il Grand Erg, ovvero il deserto del Sahara, due scenari meravigliosi così differenti e vicini tra loro.
Va detto che la strada che taglia lo Chotte el Jerid è lunga una sessantina di chilometri e non ci sono molti punti di ristoro lungo essa, per cui è bene pedalare di buona lena, o essere attrezzati per bere e per uno spuntino. Ad ogni modo la strada non presenta particolari pendenze e anche i meno allenati la potranno percorrere in non più di tre ore.

In search of mirages

The chotts are depressions that occur at more than 300 km from the Gulf of Gabes to Algeria: Chott el Fejej, Chott Jerid and Chott Rharsa. Mark the border between the desert and sand stone. On my trip I visited Tunisia Chott Jerid (dried salted lake). Situated between Tozeur and Kebili. The landscape gave me some anguish and loneliness, but has a great beauty. In summer the air vibrates gently reheated and can not distinguish the outline of things. In winter, during the rainy season of Chott Jerid areas are covered with water, seem inland seas and the road is like a boardwalk. When the sun shines on the surface salt mirages occur. I looked to see if I saw any on the horizon but no luck ... And that the heat was oppressive! I seduce this landscape both desolate and beautiful.

En busca de espejismos

Los chotts son unas depresiones que se suceden sobre más de 300 Km. desde el golfo de Gabes hasta Argelia: Chott el Fejej, Chott Jerid y Chott Rharsa. Marcan la frontera entre el desierto de piedra y el de arena. En mi viaje por Túnez visité el Chott Jerid (lago seco salado). Está situado entre Tozeur y Kebili. El paisaje me transmitió cierta angustia y soledad, sin embargo alberga una gran belleza. En verano el aire recalentado vibra suave y no permite distinguir el contorno de las cosas. En invierno, durante la estación de lluvias zonas del Chott Jerid se cubren de agua, parecen mares interiores y la carretera se asemeja a un malecón. Cuando el sol brilla sobre la superficie salada se producen espejismos. Yo miré a ver si veía alguno en el horizonte pero sin suerte... ¡y eso que el calor apretaba! Os seducirá este paisaje a la vez desolado y hermoso.

Go paisajazo

The car driving in a straight line through this spectacular sea salt. Absolutely immense mountains just cropped very bottom. There are a few points where you stop to take pictures (even with ramshackle services) but suffice it to swerve into the ditch down to take pictures. That if you have to be careful when approaching because salt structures creates very hard so I do not ever walk barefoot on them. :)

Vaya paisajazo

El coche circulaba en linea recta atravesando este espectacular mar de sal. Absolutamente inmenso solo recortado por montañas muy al fondo. Hay unos cuantos puntos en los que parar a hacer fotos (incluso con servicios destartalados) pero basta con que te apartes a la cuneta para bajar a hacer fotos. Eso si, hay que tener cuidado al acercarse porque la sal crea estructuras muy duras, así que no se os ocurra caminar descalzo por ellas. :)

Chott El Jerid is a large salt lake, the largest in Tunisia. In the past, crossing the Chott El Jerid was a real adventure for caravans heading for the Great South. Today it is quite different since paved road crosses part of Chott, and all along the way, you can see the pyramids of salt, or merchants sand roses and even mirages when it is very hot.

Le chott El Jerid est un grand lac salé, le plus grand de Tunisie. Autrefois, la traversée du chott El Jerid représentait une véritable aventure pour les caravanes se dirigeant vers la grand Sud.
Aujourd'hui, il en est tout autre puisqu'une route bitumée traverse une partie du chott, et tout au long du trajet, on peut y voir des pyramides de sel, ou bien des marchands de roses des sables et même des mirages lorsqu'il fait très chaud.

A salt lake in the middle of the Sahara desert. In it you can see the phenomenon of mirages, as this lake is often dry in a large part, and the solidified salt reflects light like a mirror, this combined with a time of dehydration, I was lucky not to suffer, can lead to illusions. A wonderful place to get lost (a little) and to appreciate something unique. Only a road running through the middle for miles either side water, salt and minerals that give colors, red, green, etc.. Wonderful.

Un lago salado en medio del desierto del sahara. En él se puede apreciar el fenómeno de los espejismos, ya que este lago suele estar seco en una gran parte, y la sal solidificada refleja la luz como un espejo, esto sumado a un momento de deshidratación, que tuve la suerte de no sufrir, puede dar lugar a espejismos.
Un lugar maravilloso para perderse (un poco) y para apreciar algo único.
Sólo una carretera que lo atraviesa por la mitad durante kilómetros y kilómetros y a ambos lados agua,sal y minerales que dan colores, rojizos, verdosos, etc.
Maravilloso.

Nothing more beautiful than watching a sunrise on the salt lake, this lake is located in southern Tunisia and is a very large dry lake (it took almost one morning by bus through it), the uniqueness of this lake, which makes it so special , optical effects that you can experience there, because of the reflection of the sun's rays on the bottom of the lake, formed by thick layers of salt, all this combined with a great sense of emptiness, silence, mystery and remoteness.

Nada mas bonito que ver un amanecer en el lago salado,este lago se encuentra en el sur de Túnez y es un lago seco y muy extenso(tardamos casi una mañana atravesarlo en autobús),la singularidad de este lago ,que lo hace tan especial,son los efectos opticos que puedes experimentar allí,debido al reflejo de los rayos de sol en el fondo del lago,formado por gruesas capas de sal,todo esto sumado a una gran sensación de vacío ,silencio,misterio y lejanía .

We visited this place in February 2006. We got there in the morning, at sunrise, which explains the soft colors of the photo. This is a large salt lake in winter turns into salt desert summer. The salt is harvested. The small building is a religious place.

Nous avons visité ce lieu en février 2006. Nous y sommes arrivés le matin, au lever du soleil, ce qui explique les couleurs tendres de la photo. C'est un grand lac salé l'hiver qui se transforme en désert de sel l'été. Le sel est récolté. Le petit édifice est un lieu religieux.

The salt lake, sec is impressive in more than one way: Its extent (5000 km ²), the heat (it was almost 50 ° C!) And brightness (brighter than a snow white!) . An incredible place to visit. It was not breaking down the long road that crossed!

Le lac salé, à sec est impressionnant à plus d'un titre: Son étendue (5 000 km²), sa chaleur (il y faisait près de 50 °C !!) et son éclat (une blancheur plus éclatante que la neige !).
Un endroit incroyable à découvrir.
Il ne s'agissait pas de tomber en panne sur la longue route qui le traversait !!!

Sal everywhere

The landscape is beautiful, nothing like what I was used to seeing so I was shocked to see the effects of the salt produced in the soil. It is worth going and seeing

Sal por todas partes

Es un paisaje precioso, nada parecido a lo que estaba acostumbrada a ver por lo que me impactó ver los efectos que producía la sal en el suelo. Merece la pena acercarse y verlo.
