Tafraout

 
 


Tafraout, also spelled Tafrawt or Tafraoute, is a town in Tiznit Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ, Morocco. It is located in the Anti-Atlas mountains in southern Morocco. According to the 2004 census it has a population of 4,931
Tiznit is 96 km south of Agadir, well connected by a major road.
The roads to Tafraoute are difficult to traverse - narrow, snakelike, and mountainous. This is a good enough reason to take the Tiznit route.
It takes about an hour to reach Tiznit where a left turning takes you to Tafraoute which is 107 km away. The first forty or so kilometres are plain sailing but once you reach the mountains it becomes more challenging. The road is somewhat narrow though it is still enough for two vehicles to pass without any problems. The climbing road is often unprotected and this is what creates some anxiety and detracts from enjoyment of otherwise stunning scenery. It should take not much longer than two hours to reach Tafraoute including a must stop at the Kerdous Hotel, located on a cliff edge at over three thousand feet above sea level overlooking the magical Kerdous Valley.
