►The Draâ Valley is Morocco'slongest river and is formed by the confluence of the Dades River and Imini River. It flows from the HighAtlasMountains southeastward to Tagounit and from Tagounit mostly westwards to the Atlantic Ocean somewhat north of Tan-Tan. The water from the Draâ is used to irrigate Palmeraies and small horticulture along the river. The inhabitants of the Draâ are called Drawi, used to refer to the dark skinned people of Draâ that make up the largest portion of its inhabitants.

►Journey from Agdz on a seven-kilometer pise in the Draa Valley to discover old Ksars where the Berbers have been living for centuries. This area is recognized for its population of Haritine people, who are black descendants from the region of Mali.

►The Draa Valley was originally known as the Valley of Olives until the 19th Century. During this perior the caravans passed through and the valley gave rise to the date palms from the the pits left on the trails they traveled. The palms proved to be a better choice as a commodity because they provide dates that are used to make baskets, leafy carpets and offer shade for the local community. 

►Next, tour Kasbah Tamnougalt. Kasbah Tamnougalt is incredible with its soaring spaces built of red pise (mud), tunnels and Kasbahs. Kasbah Tamnougalt also has a large Jewish quarter (mellah).
►Then continue the road to N’kob. Just 5 kilometers after Nkob you will visit the village of AitOuzzine (the nice village). Ait Ouzzine is nestled within the Middle Atlas Mountains. Aït Ouzzine is a Berber village inhabited by over 300 families who live in beautifully painted crenulated Kasbahs, with their own henna fields, water wells, livestock and gardens. This peaceful village is tucked away along an impressive desert route connecting the Draa Valley (Tansikht) and Rissani. Meet a local Berber family, partake in a cooking lesson of how to make traditional bread and a tajine.
