Day2 : Agouti – Arrous gorges, the outstanding mountain adventure
Ascent by the Gorges of Arrows, in a strong mineral world where the Berber take roots. Invisible on the hill where it takes the flock, its village is mixed with the rock to melt. Even his work is discreet, that makes the water run over thousands of green terraces at the bottom of the valley, throwing light, and life. In this mineral landscape, the village also becomes discreet, hidden among the trees or clinging to the mountainside.
Walk through the gorges to go for some local tea in the village ofAït Saïd. Passage through the village of Tighza. Return to the gite of Agouti for the last night in the happy valley.

You’ll pass through lots of Berber villages, and once you’re in the desert, you’ll see riverside oases and barren hillsides dotted with kasbahs (fortified dwellings that house families and their livestock). Along the way, you will have the option either to take a break and visit the Roses valley or stop for a hike. Once you reach Dades Gorge, you have the option of going for a hike, or relaxing at your hotel.Overnight in Dades. (Total driving time 5 hours)

Here, you can go for a hike to explore the palmery, a green oasis full of large date palms. After lunch you’ll head further into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga to pick up supplies for your desert trip. You will then drive on to a kasbah to pick up your camel. At sunset, you’ll trek for an hour-and-a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner, and sleep under the stars or in tents at a desert camp.
