AMSKOU ECOLODGE KASBAH is located in the community of Souk El Khemis Dades, which is about 6 km from the town of Boumalne
Although Boumalne might seem the best location for exploring the Gorges Du Dades, it is a town with absolutely nothing to recommend it and this reason, the location of Amskou is excellent, being only 10 minutes by car from the Gorge. Read more

About Amskou dades Kasbah

The building in which the rooms are located is the original family house and the owner lives with his family in a separate building in the enclosure. The room I stayed in was extremely pleasant, nicely furnished in traditional Berber style and with a clean and functional bathroom. There was a nice area in which one could sit and relax just outside the house and meals were served in a little clearing amongst the fruit trees. Lascene did everything he could to ensure that I had a pleasant stay at Amskou. During the three days I was there, we spent a lot of time chatting in the garden and he was keen to help me understand more about Morocco, the Berber culture and rural life in this part of the country. As well as running Amskou, he is a qualified mountain guide and a specialist in ornithology and is able to arrange guided tours or treks for those who might have an interest in these areas. I also had the pleasure of being entertained by Lascene's two young children, Adam and Imran (5 and 2 years old), Adam particularly being keen to practice his French with this strange Englishman who had turned up at their house.

This Iimressif nature in tthe Jurasic airea , You need around 40 minutes by car from Amskou , and you can visit it any time during the day (no light at night). You will need a little hour to reach the summit, where you can enjoy a wonderful sight. If you go there in the afternoon, you can enjoy the sunset over the hills before departing back to dades valley

Todgha oasis /todgha gorges
You need a 4 hours on foot to visit Todgha oasis, north of Tinghir It is one of the most beautiful places around, and even more during springtime, when the contrast between the fiels and laurels, and the desertic landscape around, with its abrupt and mineral cliffs near the river, is the strongest. In Fint, you can have a tea in the scre fish spring.

Skoura palm

One hour and a half away from Ouarzazate, eastwards, on the road to the roses valley, Skoura is a great oasis, where you can stay a full day, wandering in the shadows of the palm trees. Thanks to the wealth provided by the palms and the dates, the inhabitants of Skoura erected beautiful casbahs ; some of these casbahs can be visited.

You can drive to the Dades valley, Merzouga or Zagora. But, except for Zagora, you have to stay a night there.
