Oasis in the mountains

If you haven't seen any oasis you must walk there!!! You will see long palms, the shade will be cool. It's better to hire a guide. The guide will tell about caravans, will... read more

Visiting d`ait Mansour gorge, preferably by foot or bike, is great fun. It is a beautiful place with very friendly locals. Sadly it got a bit of rubbish problem. When visiting the gorge do not forget to stop at Abdous guesthouse at the beginning of the trail, next to the parking place. He is a very colourful individual who makes... More

One of the few beautiful places that has been left relatively undiscovered in Morocco, but I fear not for long. Located south of Tafroute, a beautiful gorge arises out of the mountainous area, covered in simple villages and green, green palms. The drive to the gorge can be done on your own, however you may want a 4x4 for the... More

It's an oasis hidden in a canyon. You can drive through by car or you can stop and have a walk. We stopped to have an orange juice at Auberge Ait Mansour Hanane and the view from the rooftop was great. The owner told us he's mentioned in the Lonely Planet as a guide for treks on the hills. It's... More

What an amazing route... almost just for one car in either direction. Palms abound, water gently flowing by and about half way through we had tea at the one road-side place. This was in January... not the high season and I would hope no big tourist buses later in the year. Drive the Ait Mansour and enjoy. It is one... More

Coming from Tafraoute we followed the canyon an arrived in the oasis, where the locals had started picking the dates from the palms. Interesting to drive through, but no need to stop. But general atmosphere from the inhabitants (incl. children) made it not likely that we would stay over night.

So much written about this place however if you drive to the end and then turn right you will find some magical strata mountains, nomad tents and not a soul around. You can actually return to Tafroute this way too. Dont forget to stop at the Flying Carpet panorama restaurant for mint tea....i found to be the best in Morocco.... More

The road is now very accessible. The valley has an abundance of palm trees, thousands of them, houses hidden here and there in the trees. Beautiful fresh water running down.

Breathtaking scenery, calming views and tremendous walk. What I enjoyed most was definitely the picking of freely hanging and laying dates and pomegranates. Very tasty! Second one was the guy who drove us there from Tafraoute and knew only how to shift the third gear. Up the hill the old Mercedes was coughing and dying, but didn't, and down the... More

The only negative of this place is the situation (20 km from Tafraout). To go there, you can take a grand taxi (1 or 2 time a day), ask the bike renter to drop you there and catch you later in the day for a supplement or be lucky and catch a ride from traveller who have rent a car.... More
