Dades Gorges, rose Valley
In the morning we leave from Ouarzazate. We go with a 4 × 4 to Skoura oasis. We drove along the palm valley and watch the many Kasbahs rich in the area, unfortunately, many of those kasbahs are in a dilapidated state, but a beautiful face among the many palm trees. Once back on the main road, we pass the route along the valley of roses with a stop in Kela’a M’gouna to drink a berber tea for the locals. The road leads us through the rose valley, also known as the valley of a thousand kasbahs, to reach the Dades gorges for lunch followed by a walk along the river. In the afternoon we drive through the valley of Boumalne Dades and eventually return to Ouarzazate.
