Tassili n’Ajjer National Park, a part of the Sahara Desert, has a bone-dry climate with scant rainfall, yet does not blend in with Saharan dunes. Instead, the rocky plateau of Tassili n’Ajjer rises above the surrounding sand seas. Rich in geologic and human history, Tassili n’Ajjer National Park covers 27,800 square miles (72,000 square kilometers) in southeastern Algeria.
