Erg Chebbi - Khamlia
Khamlia Travel Blog› entry 2 of 4 › view all entries
My journey began in Ouarzazate and on the road to the Erg Chebbi, we stopped in the Todra Gorges a unique place in the mountains. Amazingly, 300m high cliffs so tight with a small stream down there. Pity that the rocks are "decorated" with souvenirs. But it is nothing to do. On way to Todra there are so many palms, it is magnific, maybe 60 or 80 tausend palms (no I not remember exactly how many). The road is small but with asphalt and they repair it. Good because now it is possible eveno with small cars to go there, before it was possible only with 4x4.
I like very much the countryside on the way from Ouarzazate to Erg Chebbi. On one site the desert, on the other site Atlas still with snow. We are going through the small villages and every where are so many people.
In Tinjdad we take a pause for to eat a little and take coffee. After that we continue and at evning we are in Erg Chebbi there they allready wait for us.
It was very nice there and we had funny and we relax there. The food was very good almost the best we have eaten during our travel. Homemade so it is clear very good. At evening we danced and talk. Camel trek was fantastic but we had a little pain in our back and one of us she was going by foot at finish.
We had no feeling to leave but we need to continue our travel. But we know now that we will come back. We stayed in Rissani one city in Erg Chebbi there it is realy nice souk (market), original souk, not for tourists but for locals. And it was much more interesting than souk for example in Marrakech.
Back to Ouarzazate we were going from Rissani to Valley Draa via Tazzarine and Nkob and come to Agdz, there we stayed for the night. In Agdz I was already year 2000 and when we come there that time, there was so many people and we got know that the king is visiting Agdz. But we not saw him because we came some hour later and he were already going somewhere there. But it was funny so I say since that time that even the king came to say welcome to us.
