Video: Adventure in Ouarzazate, Morocco

Presentation

Let's have a journey in a desertic place in Morocco. Many adventure travelers fans of deserts are going to discover a city  situated in the Sahara Desert, Ouarzazate, we consider as one of the most adventurous cities in Morocco. Ouarzazate is nicknamed The door of the desert and is situated in Drâa-Tafilalet region of south-central Morocco. Ouarzazate is at an elevation of 1,160 m in the middle of a bare plateau south of the High Atlas Mountains. To the south of the town is the desert.

The town is chiefly inhabited by Berber-speakers, who constructed many of the prominent kasbahs and buildings for which the area is known. Ouarzazate is an important holiday destination in Morocco, as a base for excursions across the Draa Valley and into the desert. The fortified village (ksar) of Aït Benhaddou west of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Ouarzazate area is also a noted film-making location, with Morocco's biggest studios inviting many international companies to work here. Many famous movies have been produced there.
