Mountain & Desert Tour

Day 6 – (approx. 261km) Merzouga to Dades
Description:

Morocco 8 day Mountain & Desert - photo16Our longest day today with some fast desert riding and some slow mountain sections as we traverse the Jbel Saghro mountain range.



 


As usual we leave our hotel at 09.00 hours. The first 50 km today are the same as the last 50 km of yesterday's ride. From here to our lunch stop we have some very mixed riding on what are totally new tracks for us. Ranging from a very 'messy' 10 km as we try to cross the Gheris river to long fast sections across the many wide open plateaux to be found in this area. There are many areas where the sand has been blown up against the hills making some very spectacular long dune climbs that we can explore.

Lunch will be arranged at a small local auberge in a desert village where we will have the best beef tagine in Morocco.


Lunch over we refuel and set off again on some of our favourite trails in this area. Lots of hard packed sandy tracks, a memorable 12 km sandy riverbed as well as the very picturesque Jbel Saghro mountain range.




Our hotel this evening has a roof top swimming pool with a heated Jacuzzi set in it.  Plentiful buffet for dinner.
