The Dades Valley, or ‘Road of the thousand kasbahs’ runs from Ouarzazate to the east of Tineghir and the Todra Gorges. The route by car is spectacular, with hundreds of kasbahs that the Berbers erected to defend themselves from the invaders and that are dotted throughout the route, meandering through impressive landscapes of the Sahara desert, villages, forests and palm trees…
Once again, the Dades Valley owes its name to the river that winds between the mountains along the route, backed by ochre, terracotta and red cliffs. Visitors can enjoy beautiful Kasbahs, fortified mansions, mountains crossed by streams and canyons… A variety of landscapes that are really worth visiting. Continuing the path you will appreciate one of the most beautiful rose gardens in the valley.
The Dades Valley’s landscape is untamed, with semi-desert on one side and snow on the other.. Its wild grandeur and supernatural silence can only be matched by the Grand Canyon. The river forms the valley along a winding road full of fruits, nuts, wheat, birches and almond trees, giving us a scene of spectacular rock formations.
It is advised to travel by car if you want to see and enjoy the Dades Valley. If you don’t have your own car, you should consider renting a car in Morocco. You can also book an excursion or arrange a tailor-made trip around the area. Alternatively, hire a Grand Taxi from a nearby town or take a bus (the latter is the cheapest option).
