The Berbers are the only race living in this desert area of Matmata. They all live in artificially excavated caves, which are warm in winter and cool in summer. They are very comfortable. They will raise animals in residential areas of such caves. The living environment is actually very good. You might as well come and visit. A life like no other.
A bumpy day driving from the Gobi Desert to the hinterland of the desert, New Year's Eve spent the New Year’s Eve by the Berber enthusiastic bonfire and unrestrained drums. Seeing the sky full of stars, I immediately felt that all the hard work of climbing the mountains and ridges was worth it.

Tunisia, I experienced a Berber cave dwelling. 25 dirhams, a hearty dinner, soup, meat and dessert. There is also a good breakfast. Relatively speaking, the price/performance ratio is very good. Choose this The city challenge for a few days is very good, the sunset on the top of the mountain is also very beautiful, there are basically no tourists.
The Berber cave dwellings were built on the slope, where the Berber lived, and even the sheep pens and pig pens were in the caves. The people here are very enthusiastic, and they will warmly entertain you to visit their cave rooms. It is really touching and reluctant to leave.
