Skoura, Rose Valley, Dades gorges – 1 day

 

Morning departure from Ouarzazate by 4×4 to the Skoura oasis along a track to see all the Kasbahs, some sadly in a state of disrepair but idyllically placed amongst the palm trees. Once back on the main road, the route passes through the Valley of Roses with a stop in Kela’a M’gouna to see and sample the locally-produced rose cosmetics, famous and highly valued throughout Morocco. The best month to see the roses in early May before the three-day Rose Festival.

A track leads us away from the Rose Valley, also known as the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs. This road winds past villages and the river, which carries little water, allowing a view of the astounding rock formations and colours. We stop to have a glass of tea with Berber nomads in their caves. Lunch is in the Dades gorges with a pause for a closer look at the monkeys’ fingers rocks across the river. This is followed by a walk along the river before we return through the Dades valley and arrive back in Ouarzazate at the end of the afternoon.
