Welcome to Morocco.





ERG CHEBBI

Located at the foot of the village of Merzouga and Hassi Labiad, the Erg Chebbi is his most popular place, which is part of the itineraries of many tourists visiting Morocco.

The Erg Chebbi (in Arabic, 'Sandy area' of a desert) is the only Erg of the desert of Morocco. It has a length of 22 km and 5 km of width, and its dunes have a maximum height of 150 meters.






ERRACHIDIA

Errachidia is one of the provinces of Morocco, which is part of the Meknes-Tafilalet region, and the capital city of Tafilalt, important administrative, commercial, military and University Centre. Tafilalet is the largest oasis of the Moroccan Sahara which extends around the Ziz River.

The landscape is dominated by red mountains, rocks and stone fields. Many oasis of Palm trees that produce the famous dates can be found in the middle of this dry environment.






SAGRHO

It is a volcanic mountain located at the East of the Anti-Atlas, separated by the Valley of the River Draa.

Saghro, in the tamazight language, means drought, an appropriate name considering the Jebel Saghro is the driest area of Atlas mountain system and that reaches its peak in the Jbel Amalú nMansur, 2712 meters.

 The landscape is very arid lunar type with plateaus, peaks and vast areas of bare rock, forming a large tracks suitable for lovers of cycling and adventure tourism.





DADES

From Ouarzazate to Boumalne, extends the Valley of the Dades, starting point of the route of the Kasbahs. Its arid extension has given him a great architectural value with kasbahs and fortified villages (ksour) many of them are in ruin. A track allows you to reach Boumalne Dades gorges.

The Gorges of the Dades, who take the name of the river that digs them, starts 27 km north of Boumalne Dades, the administrative capital of the region. Boumalne Dades is located at almost 1. 600 m. height, on the edge of the High Atlas with high plateaus that separate it from the Jbel Saghro.

Its high altitude, as well as its cold and wet climate, determines the existence of a completely different vegetation, mainly characterized by the absence of date palms.





ERFOUD

To the South of Errachidia is Erfoud, point of departure for the dunes of Erg Chebbi. At the end of the main street, the asphalt road ends and begins a long series of dunes that announce the desert. The highest, Merzouga, can reach the 150 meters high. It is here where they say that you can attend one of the most beautiful sunrises in the world.





RISSANI

The city is located at the East of Morocco, in the province of Errachidia, and at the gates of the dunes of Erg Chebbi, the unique expanse of desert of the Moroccan Sahara with 22 kilometers of length.





IFRANE
 
The province of Ifrane is known as the Switzerland of Morocco. For the first time in the history of the Gaes Titan Desert by Garmin, the race started in 2016 in this province, located at 1600 meters of altitude.

The traditional landscape of the race (desert, dunes...) changed radically for the Middle Atlas mountains, with a more technical route and with more climbing for the cyclists.

A spectacular province that allowed us to discover a new Morocco for the Gaes Titan Desert by Garmin.
 
Participants of the 2016 edition has good memories of this zone of Morocco.
