These brown areas of hills are located in the southernmost part of Béchar, a province (wilaya) in Algeria, named after its capital Béchar. Despite the aridity of most of the area, a lake is visiable near the right edge.

The orange colored sand dunes reaching the base of the hills in the upper right quadrant are the southwesternmost edge of the Grand Erg Occidental (Great Western Sand Sea), the second largest erg in northern Algeria.
