The climate of Ghat (Libya)
The town of Ghat lies in the south-west of Libya in the Sahara, on an altitude of approximately 700 meters above sea-level. Ghat lies on the border with neighboring country of Algeria and earlier used to be an important caravan site on the way to Niger. The town of Ghat lies in the domestic area of the Touareg. Of late years it has been growing into a more and more popular tourist destination. Particularly for tourists traveling to the Acacus mountains.
Ghat has a desert climate which is strongly influenced by the Sahara. The summers are very hot and the winters very mild. Rain is very rare and the sun shines practically continuously. In the spring and the autumn there is a chance of the ghibli, a very hot and dry wind which carries along much reddish brown dust and sand from the Sahara. In the winter months it can freeze a degree or two at night.
