Leaving our hotel after breakfast and continue northwards through the narrow Dades Gorge, with only room for the river and a narrow road and majestic overhanging cliff walls.
Then it’s biking the wonderful switchback road that Dades is famous for to the end of the asphalt at the mountain village of Msemrir. Amazing scenery with vast views out over the valleys and Atlas Mountains on the way there.
Stop for a coffee and then return back down to the main road at Dades. Don’t miss the extensive green palmeraie down in the river valley. Back on the main road we are now on “the route of 1000 kasbahs”.
So many to be seen in various states of repair as we drive along. Lunch stop en route and a visit to the Kasbah Ben Moro in Skoura one of the nicest renovated kasbahs in this area. On to the film capital of Ouarzazarte to our 3* hotel in the town center.
