This is a cool and humid environment, reaching its peak during the spring thaw: fresh streams of water flow vigorously, fostering lush vegetation and vibrant colors, such as the blossoming almond and cherry trees.

The villages scattered along the valley slopes are also highly interesting: they blend perfectly into the environment and host a population with a strong pottery tradition. Therefore, handmade souvenirs and ornamental minerals extracted from the valley can be easily found.

The journey here is short and quick from Marrakech: after just 40 km and 50 minutes, beautiful landscapes will unfold before us.
