Province d' Ouarzazate Travel Guide: 634 reviews and 2,324 photos

The Ouarzazate province is located in central Morocco, right south of the High Atlas mountains, down to the Sahara desert and the border with Algeria. It is mainly a mountaineous, desertic region with terrific landscapes and many natural beauties and big contrasts, like snow in summer on top of the High Atlas peaks and unbearable heat year-round on the first sand dunes of the Sahara Grand Erg.
The places I enjoyed the most have been the Todra Gorges, the historical village of Tamegroute and the High Atlas mountains. Oh yes, there are sand dunes, too, but I was arriving from Algeria where I had seen nothing else than sand for the previous two weeks...

    Great page of this wonderful area. Funny I realise now, that I visited the same area in two parts with 25 years in between.
