village in red and pink

Tafraoute is 130 KM south east of Agadir in the Anti Atlas.
Tafraoute is easy reachable in an one day tour from Agadir, like we did in 1992.
There are also hotels in the area to stay for the night or a few days.
Tafraoute is a very relaxed and easygoing place in an extremely beautiful mountaineous landscape of pink granite.

To Tafraoute we took the more eastern road passing Ait Baha.
It's a scenic road through the mountains of the Anti Atlas.
We saw villages at the hillsides with walls in the colour of the mountainside. On the slopes were cultivated terraces.
There was not much traffic.
The local transport, we saw, was mostly by donkey.

    The pictures of the rocks at Tafraoute remind me of the rocks here in Arizona, but then the soil there is fertile as you said (not like here)...wonderful page and a true adventure, Norman :)

    Beautiful page! I found Tafraoute and Anti Atlas the most beautiful area of Morocco. So beautiful that I'd like to visit it again.

    A great example of the communion between the man and the nature... and the adaptation to the environment. Beautiful page and place.
