The Desert is the ultimate place for contrasts. It may appear monotonous at first, but it is actually extremely rich and diversified. As we are gradually taken away from our material life, it feeds our spirit, transforms our usual refences, and opens our minds on the infinite.
For us, as much as for the first men, it remains an endless enigma. This trip through the Moroccan desert is a means to discover this fabulous world, making the best of a preserved nature and of silence, far from urban artefacts.
Made of two contrasted parts (one of rocks and one of sand) it unveils beautiful mountains and dunes.
Having set off from Marrakech, we will head to the Draa Valley, where we will meet our camel team down the pass of Oum lâcher. There we will start the trek in the mountain part before joining the dunes. We will end up in Mhamid palm grove. From there we will be transferred to Ouarzazate and Marrakech.
This trip will make each one of you live a wonderful range of feelings, and the sand you will find in your bag once you are back, will remind you that forgetting the world of the desert once you have experienced it, is almost impossible.
