ALG-288, unnamed arch 12, Tagrera Area. 8 meter height (estimated). GPS 32Q 244137 2379562. From La Chambre (ALG-287) we took a 30-minute drive due east to Buddha's Valley ("Taguelman Semed" in the Tamahaq dialect). This site is visible from La Chambre with binoculars. It is a small side canyon with a row of rocks which look like the Buddha's profile. Two interesting arches guard the valley entrance, one of which is this elephant-shaped rock (the other is ALG-289).
