Made the mistake of believing the guide book about the existence of troglodyte dwellings, but without doing enough research to establish their precise whereabouts.  As we were in a bit of a hurry (unnecessarily so it transpired) to meet convoy for desert crossing we ended up just enjoying some spectacular views and an interesting village rather than finding the caves...need to go back again someday!

Although you can get there along the Wadi in about 8 km, the approach is far more impressive if you take the turn from main Chinguetti piste (about 11km out of Ouadane), then descend from plateau down rocky piste into Wadi.
