1 Day

Start your excursion by a pick up from your hotel around 8h30, followed by a stop at the fisherman village on the wild beach of Sidi R’bat, where you will have a chance to pop in to see the fishermen’s caves and perhaps find some shells at the isolated beach.

And then, drive into a Rally way on sand dunes and sandy terrain, along the Atlantic ocean, then have a quick stop at Massa river of where you will spot -if you are lucky- some migrating birds, before driving towards the walled city of Tiznit, where you will see the walls and the ramparts of the old city of Tiznit.

We will have small break in Tiznit for rest and to learn little about the city, feel free to go for a walk in the old Medina (Old city), and browse the handmade Berber silver jewellery.

After the visit of the silver city of Tiznit, We will drive towards the atlas mountains, to enjoy a lunch of two meals (Tajine and Couscous) in a local Berber house, accompanied by a dessert of local seasonal fruits and a mint tea. ( Tajine, Couscous, dessert and the mint tea are all included in this trip – vegetarian meals can be requested as well).

After lunch, you will have your free time in small Sahara dunes to take photos and enjoy your time on sand dunes, where you will be able to snap a quick camel ride tour.

After the small sahara stop, we will travel to the reservoir of Youssef Ben Tachfine (water dam), while taking sights of everyday Moroccan country lifestyle, for a panoramic view from the top of the hill, before making your way back to your hotel.

Itinerary

Arrive at Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu, you are welcomed by the team and then you will be transferred to your hotel. This trail goes through Ghorepani Poon Hill. Normally, the trek starts like Phokhara to Nayapul and ends like Phedi to Pokhara.

While early travel tended to be slower, more dangerous, and more dominated by trade and migration, cultural and technological advances over many years have tended to mean that travel has become easier and more accessible. The evolution of technology in such diverse fields as horse tack and bullet trains has contributed to this trend.

The Palace of Fifty five Windows: This magnificent palace was built during the reign of King Yakshya Malla in A.D. 1427 and was subsequently remodeled by King Bhupatindra Malla in the seventeenth century. Among the brick walls with their gracious setting and sculptural design, is a balcony with Fifty five Windows, considered to be a unique masterpiece of woodcarving.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.

Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek.
