We went to see an oasis and a valley of roses. A 200kmround trip produced neither, no water, not a single rose except those for sale along the road. Maybe it was the wrong time of year?

A beautiful area, we´ve been there on our tour with Desert Dream4x4. I definitely want to come back in the time of the blossoms, and see more of its beauty. You can find a lot of nice products made of roses, and have many spectacular views.

Hiking in this valley in is entering another dimension of colors and smells. Roses grown here everywjere and everything is done with roses: soaps, perfumes, beauty creams, dyes, inks, paints for the face, etc., etc.. A fabulous place that undoubtedly deserves a visit.

the best part of the valley is not where the town is located, but you need to drive farther to boutaghrar, with nice views on the way for 30 km.boutaghrar is a nice place to do short walks.you can walk following mgoun river, or elhot river.full of traditional villages and friendly people.
