|Waw al-Namus and Zueila|
Described by one guide book as the most remote place in the world on account of
it lying almost in the middle of the Sahara Waw al-Namus lives up to this
reputation when you are driving to it. However it is also referred to as the
eigth wonder of the world. The ancient volcano has several superbly set lakes
in its crater and a full day can be spent here walking up the volcano and
swimming in the lakes - but bring a mosquito repellant.
On the way to Waw al-Namus one passes the old town of Zueila where at a place
called As-Sahaba seven tombs are found belonging to seven of Mohammed's
followers who died here in battle.
