Between mountains and desert, between the Dades valley and the Drâa valley, Jebel Saghro is a volcanic massif of great beauty. Its gorges, towers and rocky peaks are strangely reminiscent of the landscapes of the Hoggar desert. Naked landscapes that hide some green valleys covered with almond trees, oleander, fig and palm trees. During the season, small fields of cereal crops can be observed. Its highest point is the Kouadouch, at about 2600 m altitude. These countries, apparently inhospitable, nevertheless provide a haven for the herds of goats or camels that the nomads of the tribe of Ait Atta accompany from the high plateaux of the chain M'Goun (second summit of the High Atlas) covered with snow in winter. Their presence creates a special atmosphere for these lunar spaces.
