ouirgane amongst the olive trees
Right after i landed in Marrakech in the morning, I stored most of my luggage at hotel Chambres d'Amis. Together with my friend Ank, we traveled to the atlas mountains in her old baby blue Renault 4 the same morning.
We went to the mountains to prepare the Marvelous Marrakech workshops in peace and moreover to escape the heat wave in Marrakech and to spend a few laid back days together.
After a short stopover at the river we traveled on to our final destination Ouirgane. It's a peaceful Berber village situated in the High Atlas mountains in the heart of the Toubkal National Park at about 1,000 metres above sea level. The Oued Nfis River flows through the valley of the commune. The village itself lies on the eastern bank of the reservoir and barrage which dams the Oued Nfis river. The village is set amongst olive trees.
I can't think of a better place to start a new moroccan adventure.
