The road will take us to the city of Ouarzazate that connects the desert road to Marrakech.

From Ouarzazate we set onto road of Thousand Kasbah passing the palm date oasis of SKoura and valley of Roses that smells so good at the end of April beginning of May. We will end our day in the lovely gorge of Dades.

The walls of the gorge are 300 meters high and many local Berber people can often been seen in the gorge with their herds. Then we follow the road to Merzouga, the gateway to the desert. Upon arrival to Merzouga the apricot swelling sand dunes that spread as far as eye can see are magnificient place to visit, highlight for many on their visit to Morocco.

Today it will be short drive to Ouarzazate from where the nearby Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou is located. This amazing Ksour and probably most visited in Morocco was an inspiration to many movie makers.
