Tadrart Rouge

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tadrart_Rouge

The Tadrart Rouge, meaning "Red Tadrart", is a mountain range in southeastern Algeria.

The range is a roughly 100 km long southern prolongation of the Libyan Tadrart Acacus. It reaches its maximum elevation of 1,340 m towards the southern end of the range at about 160 km southeast of Djanet.

The Tadrart Rouge area is well known for the spectacular orange color of the sands contrasting with the jagged dark red rock formations of the range.[2][3]
