ALG-533, El Mandar Arch, In-Essou Area. 22.0 meter span by 7.2 meter height (both measured). GPS 32N 577624 2716710. Cross under ALG-532 (Rock Mass Arch) and walk east 400 meters to this splendid and fragile arch. You cannot help to notice this arch even if you have little interest in natural arches. It is a real gem. Note the author on the top for scale. "El Mandar" means "landscape" both in the Arabic language and in the Tamahaq dialect. Photo taken close to sunset.
