Stop and visit UNESCO world site Ait Benhaddou to later skirt through Ouarzazate and then cross the gorges and reach 1700 meters high, from where the panorama of the legendary Draa Valley unfolds.

The nearby Nassiria library holds a 10 century old gold- engraved Koran and various treaties on astronomy, medicine and Arab poetry among other gems. Before leaving the tarmac behind and take on the Sahara, we recommend visiting a traditional ksour and having lunch with a local family.
