I have choosed Dades Valley, located between the peaks of the High Atlas and the Jbel Sarhro mountain range, because of its contrasts. Known as ‘The Valley of One Thousand Kasbahs’, it is the most prominent of the oasis valleys that dominate southern Morocco. It is, also, the heart of rose growing country. Damask roses were first planted by French settlers, and are harvested to produce an essential oil, used in “Eau de Rose”.
Hiking along Dades Valley is not a demanding challenging experience: even if you are not a keen mountaineer, you will still enjoy it.
If you enjoy hiking at lower altitudes, surrounded by fantastic scenery, then this is a trip for you.
You’ll have the opportunity to experience the Bedouins life as long as we will traverse Erg Chebbi dunes from Yasmina to Merzouga.
At the end of the trip, before coming back to Marrakesh we will visit Ait Ben Haddou; as Lonely Planet says “this UNESCO-protected red mudbrick ksar, 32km from Ouarzazate, seems frozen in time, still resembling its days in the 11th century as an Almoravid caravanserai”.
If you want to go higher up and climb the highest summit of North Africa (Toubkal-4167m), then you might consider the other program in Morocco.
