Natural Regions, Fezzan

sandy area, wells, highest point, springs, land

About 500 km (300 mi) south of Tripoli, the plateau descends to the Fezzan basin, a sandy area with scattered oases. Life here depends upon water provided by wells and springs. To the southeast, the land again rises to a desert plateau and, along the southern border of Libya, gives way to the high, rugged Tibesti massif. The highest point in Libya—Pic Bette, 2,286 m (7,500 ft) tall—is located here.
