You'll have to quietly relax in the valley of Zat, taking in the sublime landscapes that are still quite unknown and unfrequented.
We'll pass through the village Tidssi in the valley of Assatsse, where the valley is lined with olive trees, laurels and junipers along its wadi, where superb adobe villages cling to the slopes of the mountain. Far from the madness of the world, the Berbers have shaped terraced landscapes with green crops. From there you will be transferred in 4X4 to the Zat valley in the village of Tamaroute.
Located in the Toubkal National Park, simple and seductive, preserved and pastoral, the Zat Valley unrolls its unknown landscape under the gaze of the Atlas Giants, between the gardens of the Ourika and the splendours of Marrakesh.
