Ouarzazate is the capital of the South. It is easily reached from Marrakech. The town is a good base for exploring the Kasbah Trail and the surrounding sub-Saharan region. To the east are the Dades Valley, known as the Valley of the Thousand Kasbahs, and the gorges of Dades and Todra. To the south is the Draa Valley, whose date palm oases stretch for many miles to the Sahara Desert near the village of Mhamid.
