Best of Ouarzazate
Previous kimkim travelers have trekked from Ourzazate to the picturesque village of Tagdilte and up to spots like the summit of Jebel Kouaouch, the Tassigdelt Plateau, the Berber village of Boulouze, and through the Afourar gorges to the Bab N`Ali sandstone blocks. Opt for a different trek out to the popular Valley of the Roses, including a transfer to Qelaat Mgouna, the capital of the valley. A different excursion could take you to the Fint Oasis roughly an hour away, where a small village sits in palm-lined oasis in the middle of the desert and you’re more likely to spot a donkey than a car.
