The landscapes are all in contrast to the foot of the central High Atlas. From the large palm grove of Skoura, oasis, almond groves and open valleys follow one another before the austere plateaus of Ait Zaghar dominated by M'Goun. It is the territory of the tribes of Imghrane and Ikandoulne, where small lost douars are hidden in the scenery. Still a few arid and desert areas giving the surrounding area a desert look, and you join the Valley of Roses, one of the most enchanting region of the Great South Morocco. You discover the gardens of the Atlas, with their beautiful kasbahs of ocher earth and their thousands of roses delimiting the fields and orchards irrigated by the seguias. Women and children pick rose petals in April, and in May, for three days, a moussem closes the harvest.
