Welcome to The Jerid


While cartographers tend to label the Chott El Jerid as a lake, for most of the year this bone-dry depression looks more like the moon. It’s easy to lose your focus driving along the causeway that bisects the chott, to try to catch a glimpse of the gypsum crystals that form in small pools alongside the road or to stare off into the hazy distance.

Tozeur is the best place from which to explore the Chott El Jerid.
