Algeria Travel Guide: Tamanrasset & The HoggarTamanrasset is the remote Tuareg capital of the Hoggar (or Ahaggar) region of the Algerian Sahara, close to the massive volcanic field of Atakor, the jagged crests of Taguerguiste and Tizouyag and the guelta - desert water source - of Afilal. To climb to the peak of nearby Assekrem as night falls is to witness one of the Sahara's most beautiful sunsets.
