Touggourt is located in the south of Algeria. With a population of over 300,000 it is one of the biggest cities of the Sahara.

From a touristic perspective the desert around and the date palm groves are the biggest draws. The tombs of the Beni Djellab kings are an important place of pilgrimage for the locals.

The city has quite some hotels and restaurants.

Touggourt is really a nice oasis that deserves to be visited, it is just around 600Km from the capital city Algiers, it is also close to Hassi Messaoud  the city of oil in Algeria, as it is 100 km from El Oued thousand and thousand domes city.

Do not hesitate just visit Touggourt, to discover the algerian generosity and simplicity.
