Tourism in Libya:

 

Libyan land is a mix of fruitful plains and the vast desert with no sweet rivers or lakes, as it totally depends on season rain falls during Autumn, winter, and spring with different amounts, or drilling deep wells for irrigation. The mountains which are formed of hard rocks extend inwards form the gate-way to the Sahara , through Al-Jabal Al-Akhdhar on the east, leading to the oases of Jalu, Oujla, and Ejkherra, then the oasis of Al-Kufra on the deep south-east ; or from Sirt through the five oases of Hun, Waddan, Sokana, Al-fugh’ha, and Zalla, which do aim to the volcanic area of Waw-Ennamous, and finally to Tibisti mountains at the farthest south , or from the west coast through Jabal Nafusa summit treasures of Yefren, Kabaw, Nalut , to the desert jewel of Ghadames at the farthest west , and along the west borders southwards to the calm oasis of Ghat with its unique traditional details, surrounded by the Acacus-Tadrart ancient sophisticated civilization of pre-historic rock-art, and together with the rock formation at Aramat, maghidat, and Maghatghat.
