LIFE OF BERBERS BETWEEN THE ATLAS AND THE DESERT – 5 DAYS
Direction Sud invites you on a five day journey through the history and traditions of southern Moroccan Berbers, experiencing the pleasure of slow travelling. Ideal for senior travelers and families with children, especially in spring.
An unforgettable slow trip with the imazighen, the free people of the desert, discovering the beautiful landscapes, the amazing colors and the unforgettable flavors of a unique land enclosed between the Atlas mountains and the lush oases at the gates of the Sahara. Starting from Marrakech, we’ll cross the central High Atlas at the Tizi n’ Tichka pass to reach the majestic Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, through the ancient salt route in the Ounila Valley. On the way to Ait Ben Haddou, we’ll travel along the ruins of the Glaoui Palace in Telouet, the suggestive village of Asaka, carved in to the rocks of a steep canyon, and the beautiful kasbah of Tamdakht. We'll then explore this unique territory moving east to the oasis of Skoura, one of the last still inhabited and cultivated, and the Rose Valley, marvelous in spring during flowering. The last two days of the trip will be dedicated at the discovery of the Draa Valley, the largest oasis in North Africa, and the silent city of Ouarzazate, with its traditional souk and the beautiful Taorirte palace, finely restored in recent times.
