ALG-202, Little Pass Arch, Salihohen Pass Area. 7 meter span (estimated). From Djanet and In-Abarba follow the 4WD tracks northeast into a large oued (wash). Then drive Oued Telegui to the start of the trip in Oued Djewat, located 17 km from Djanet. Consult a guide to know how to get here. From the end of the tracks hike upstream approximately 2 hours through hills of stone. Then leave the Oued Djewat and climb a little gully (left) for about 15 minutes to the top of the hill with numerous granite boulders. Climb down the hill into a drainage until another major oued is reached. Follow this oued northeast for 1 hour or more to a junction with a wash coming east. Climb up this wash to the east. There are several dry falls formed by granite boulders to negotiate (sometimes difficult for a donkey). Continue on the trail eastward and ascend a ravine to a little pass, approximately 1.5 hours from the junction (see photo on Map 8 ). The arch is located on the side of the trail to the left (the trail is visible in the background of the photo). Total hiking is about 6 to 6.5 hours, depending on the progress of the donkeys on the harder parts of the trail.
