From Souss to Marrakech by the tizi n'Test
This is "the" excursion! Going to the south of Morocco and not crossing the tizi n'Test is giving up an unforgettable must. It's like missing out on a tagine or not tasting the Friday couscous ... This magnificent and epic course at the foot of the Toubkal can be done either from Marrakech to the Jardin aux Etoiles, or from our riad towards the Ocher City.
As soon as you have to drive nearly six hours on the road , you should set aside a day, which will be filled with countless discoveries for those who know how to see and appreciate ...
This crossing is fascinating in all seasons, except in winter when it is better to avoid ice, which has already caused too many accidents. Some speak of a Dantesque journey and many Moroccans almost assimilate it to the kingdom of the Devil, so that they ... have never taken it! The route certainly includes many bends. But it is always secure, especially by low walls.
Magnifique, particulièrement en hiver, lorsque les plus hauts sommets sont encore enneigés. Le Tinergouet (à gauche) culmine à un peu plus de 3'500 mètres.

Le riad Hida se situe dans la partie sud du bourg d'Ouled Berhil
Un jardin plus que centenaire
A la tombée de la nuit, ils s'approchent pour sauter de cette construction à leurs nids, qui se trouvent sur des arbres situés en face.

From your riad in Ouled Berhil
If you start from the Souss valley - the direction of the journey that offers the strongest sensations - you have to go up to Ouled Berhil. In this locality, if you have the time, a stop at the riad Hida , with its old-fashioned charm and founded in the 19th century by the pasha of the same name.
You will admire the Arab-Andalusian garden, the vegetation of which was installed under the Protectorate, so that we can see all the advantage of the passage of time. You will also come face to face with the peacocks of the house, which have multiplied ... quite naturally.
