Chott el Jerid in Tunisia is a large salt lake in southern Tunisia and the largest salt pan of the Sahara with a surface area of over 7,000 km². Due to the extreme climate with annual rainfall of only 100 mm and temperatures reaching 50° C, water evaporates from the lake. In summer Chott el Jerid is almost entirely dried up, and numerous fata morganas occur. Chott el Jerid was used as a filming location for the Star Wars series.
