When We remember my journey to Morocco, it truly is immediately the stunning Moroccan landscapes of which come returning to mind and the splendid architecture of the particular buildings. I noticed there is now more than a year a new circuit of the week in lower Morocco, with an excellent group of eight people, which We keep excellent reminiscences. Back on my personal trip to The other agents…
We landed throughout Marrakech and we all joined our resort inside the early evening. I had developed a bad night as the area was not isolated and our neighborhood friends had a celebration until the end regarding the night… Inside short, it had been Marrakech!
The up coming morning, we-took typically the bus to the city of Ouarzazate. The street that crosses the cycle of the High Atlas by the particular Tizin-Tichka pass is long and winding however the landscapes happen to be very beautiful.
We then took typically the road of “Thousand Kasbahs”, located inside the Dades Vly. We then see pretty clay towns, ksours, kasbahs, these kinds of are the quality buildings of southern Morocco.
We went to the ksar of Ait Dan Haddou. It will be an UNESCO-listed prepared village, which has been utilized as a set in place for several well-known films such while Lawrence Darabie, typically the Mummy and Knight in shining armor of Persia. This is one of typically the places that struck me by far the most in the course of my stay throughout Morocco.
The up coming day, we sank in the wasteland portion of Morocco. The particular landscapes are dry and really surprising. All of us sometimes meet wandering dromedaries in some sort of large desert area, some sellers about the sly that can come out of no place and discover typically the habits of Moroccans. I was shocked to see of which water was nevertheless being collected by a well, that ladies were washing clothes within the waterways and this many villagers appeared to spend the time near their residences doing nothing. And the preservation involving meat, never speak about it!
All of us spent the nighttime in Tinerhir. Within the surroundings, a single can discover beautiful palm groves. It is usually the starting stage for your dunes regarding Merzouga, my almost all beautiful memory regarding Morocco. We gone at dusk and so the temperatures were fairly pleasant. The sundown was beautiful, the images of the sundown inside the dunes associated with Merzouga are visible here.
Otherwise, during our stay, this was very hot, generally 40 ï¿½, inspite of the fact that will we traveled during the middle involving September. We have been capable to consult the particular current temperatures and even weather in The other agents via Meteovista. Many of us had seen which it would be wonderful and how the conditions would be “normal” for the time. Meteovista gives weather forecasts for England, Europe, Morocco and even the whole entire world. We can simply hope that it will be warm every trip!
The next day, even now under the beautiful sun of Morocco, we stopped at the particular Gorges du Todra. It is a natural site exactly where the rocky coves are very high and close collectively. Some climbers climb up these walls upwards to 300 meters high. A slim path allows you to go walking down these cliffs. A stream goes by right by.
Many of us slept in Erfoud, “the capital of the date”, then we took the road to Zagora. Tours from Marrakech to Merzouga We that passes the Draa Valley, where fortified villages and oases follow a single another. Then many of us spent the afternoon and the night with this old caravan city which served as stage intended for those who were heading towards Timbuktu.
The next day, we took the trail to Ouarzazate: the doorway of the wasteland. This Moroccan metropolis is located at typically the confluence from the valleys of Draa in addition to Dades. The travelers are numerous along with the souks do not really miss! It is definitely also the town of cinema: a lot of films are chance in Ouarzazate plus the city serves famous actors during filming. We also discovered on web-site the sets involving the movie Asterix and Obelix Quest Cleopatra. It’s good to see the particular cinematography in actual life but it can disappointing to see how abandoned these people are and some sort of sorry state…
