Boumalne Dades & the valley of the roses

The Dadès River rises in the High Atlas and then turns south crossing through the Dadès Gorge, then westward between the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountain ranges. The river finally meets the Ouarzazate River, which then enters Draa River.

Dades Gorge is easily accessible by taxi from nearby Tinerhir. The scenery is significant with views of interesting rock formations. The valley itself is made lush and green by the river, while the surrounding area is rocky desert. There are simple communities still living here in traditional houses. Women can be seen washing laundry in the river and laying it to dry on the surrounding bushes.
