Arrive at Kasbah Tamnougalt, a village in the Draa River, and discover a famous Kasbah. Afterwards, head to the village of Amazrou and visit the former Jewish Quarter where a mosque now stands.
Next, take a camel excursion across the Dunes of Tinfo and visit the old Kasbah Ait Lkaid in the village of Tamegroute. At the end of the main road you will find the famous road sign to Timbuktu that reads “52 jours”, which means it's 52 hours away by camel!

Continue on toward Tamegroute, a village located in the heart of Zagora. It's Koranic library once held 40,000 volumes from the theological college dating back to the 11th-century. The library contains a collection of illuminated Korans, the oldest of which are written on gazelle skins.
