Draa Valley

Print Page

From the town of Ouarzazate, a paved road winds 120 miles (193km) along the spectacular Draa Valley to the desert town of Zagora. Along the way, there is some exceptional scenery, the intense cultivation of the valley cutting a broad band of colour through the surrounding desert. Dotted along the valley are red-earth kasbahs, Berber villages, and the many beautiful oases for which the valley is known. After Zagora, the road continues another 55 miles (95km) through a parched, desolate landscape to M'Hamid, where it literally disappears into the sands of the Sahara.
