Lakes of Ounianga, Chad

The lakes of Ounianga consist of 18 freshwater lakes located in an extremely arid region of northeastern Chad where the average yearly rainfall is about 1/16 of an inch. The lakes vary in size, color and depth. Their aesthetic appeal is enhanced by surrounding palms and sandstone rock formations. If inscribed, the lakes would be Chad's first UNESCO World Heritage site.
