Track Character

Dunes

On several days small partly also large dune areas are crossed. At the beginning with camels. 

Oasis

The river oases of the Tafilatet and the Draa Valley extend over an area of 100 km2. A labyrinth of single trails serves the local population to reach the different properties.

These single trails form the trail sections at the beginning and end of the Challenge
