Erg Chebbi - Ouarzazate. After a spectacular sunrise over the desert, we will make our way back to our frontier post where there will be time to freshen up before continuing on our adventure. Our next stop will be the verdant Draa Valley, brimming with natural, historical and archaeological wonders. En route we will pass through many small villages, where a lack of modernity makes it appear as if time has stood still. Women are fully veiled while washing their clothes on the riverbanks and the watchful men seem distant, unaccustomed to foreign visitors.
Following the route of 1000 Kasbahs we will continue our journey on to Ouarzazate. Sitting at an altitude of 1160 metres in the middle of a barren plateau, Ouarzazate lies at the cross roads of all routes going north, south, east, and west, making it a key trading post in both ancient and modern times. Today, the area is mostly populated by Berber people, who were constructors of the numerous fortified kasbahs and dwellings for which the region is famous. After hotel check-in enjoy free time for the remainder of the day β consider some much needed rest and relaxation by the pool.
