The majority of participants in this 1st of May event were students from the Oran region (Université d'Oran, USTO, Lycée Lotfi and many more educational instituations). Some Chinese and Spanish tourists took part too.

Various associations such as Oran Bel Horizon and Nomad invited their members and friends to walk up the mountain.

The walk commenced at 09:00 from Place du 1er Novembre (Place d'armes), then followed through the Porte de Canastel (Canastel door) and continued up the 430m mountain to the top where a large party was held with music provided by a DJ.

The day ended around 18:00 with the comfort of an easier journey down.
