Errachidia-Midelt-Merzouga, between Atlas and desert


Midelt, Errachidia and Merzouga lead the east side of Morocco. The first two cities show a mountainous country with the reliefs of the Middle Atlas Mountains that draw perfect nature. This majestic setting seduces and charms its visitors. It is also from there that the caravans used to leave, loaded with food, for Timbuktu, and returning back.

Merzouga is one of the gates of the Sahara which is a small magnetic village located in the middle of the sands. It’s the territory of the Erg Chebbi, a world of dunes, palm groves, tracks and hikes. Roam through the desert and explore these expansive sand bathed in sunshine and a magic atmosphere. You walk in the middle of these arid vastness when, at the bend of a dune, and you see a lake : you’ve just arrived to Dayet Srij.

Stilts are characterizing its waters, above which are flying doves and wagtails, and storks are hovering. In the middle of the desert is established a wide variety of ecosystems, the richest of Morocco.

The Moroccan east is full of curiosities. Get immersed in the mountains and deserts and say hello to a completely different country !
