ALG-528, Double Gate Arch I, In-Essou Area. 3.9 meter height (measured). From Ichoumar Arches (ALG-526 and ALG-527), use Ichoumar trail to the east in the direction of the Libya border. Quickly after leaving the arches, the trail goes down a steep slope behind the arches to reach a canyon bottom. Once on the wash bottom, follow the canyon (east) to a short narrow passage. Cross the narrows and at the exit leave the wash and short-cut a large meander. Then walk on flat area of the trail toward a massive tower. Once close to the large tower, this double arch is located on the right. The massive tower is shown in the photo. It takes only 30 minutes to reach here from Ichoumar Arches.
