Location in Libya

Mount Arkanu or Jabal Arkanu (also Jebel Arkenu or Gebel Árchenu) is a mountain in Libya.


The mountain is located in the Libyan Desert in the Kufra District of Libya, about 300 km southeast of El Tag.[1] and about 70 km west of Arkanu and the two Arkenu structures. Its height is 1,435 metres (4,708 ft), rising about 500 m above the surrounding Gilf Kebir plateau and a valley-oasis. Mount Arkanu is 28 kilometres (17 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide.[2]

Arkanu's existence had been known since 1892 through Arab sources, but the mountain was explored for the first time in 1923 by Ahmed Hassanein.[1] The mountain consists of intrusive granite. The valley is 15 km long and oriented east-west.[1] The vegetation consists of bushes, grass and some trees.[1]

Arkanu is used as a pasture. Each year the Bedouins bring their herds to the valley, block the entrance (located at a height of 598 metres (1,962 ft)) with rocks, and return three months later to retrieve their cattle.[1]
