Visit the weekly market in Tafraout, travel through the Anti-Atlas’s Ameln Valley, and stop for lunch before admiring the almond groves and the panoramic views from Kerdous Peak.
What to Expect
Take a scenic roundtrip journey through Anti-Atlas’s remote Ameln Valley to the small village, Tafraout, which means “trough” or “depression,” and see its weekly market that occurs every Tuesday. Explore the outskirts of the town and discover mini-mansions among boulders, which are occupied mostly by Tafraoutis who hold jobs in Morocco or Europe and return for the holidays each year.
See the boulders that surround the village and extend through the entire Ameln Valley, changing from pink to gray to gold, depending on the time of day, and the almond trees that are prevalent in the Ameln Valley. Stop for lunch in Tafraout, and see the brightly painted houses and rocks and friendly Berber people who live here. Spend some time admiring the scenery and browsing the local market. Pass picturesque fortified villages, almond groves, and fields surrounded by prickly pear hedges. Make your way to the Kerdous Peak and admire views 3609 feet above sea level.
Continue to the silver capital, Tiznit, which has maintained a glowing reputation for its metalwork and silver jewelry. At the end of the day, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
