The modern hilltop town of Jadu is a mixed Berber-Arab settlement overlooking the hilly limestone massif Jabel Nafusah in Western Libya. The height of the chain ranges from 470 to 1000 meters. The town is build on the site of an older town, and has a few very old buildings remaining. Jado offers a fascinating drive up its southern entrance, spiralling up the mountain like a giant serpent, awesome network of valleys and mountain cliffs and slopes, and numerous caves and olive groves. Upon reaching the top, the plains will instantly transcend with peaceful solitude.
