Zagora – Agdz – Ouarzazate (168km)

Draa River is the longest river in Morocco, the section from Zagora to Agdz is the most stunning. there are countless Kasbahs all along the river, together with the lush palmeraies and breathtaking mountains, plus the interesting contrast of the dry valley to a wide river during the time of irrigation, It was truly a feast for the eyes. .....

Touring Morocco by Bike (10): Merzouga – N’Kob

Merzouga – Rissani – Alnif – Tazzarine – N’Kob (224km)

It was pretty hard to leave the amazing Merzouga.

After Merzouga, I rode on a boring 35km flat road to Rissani, a dusty city with nothing special, so I continued my journey after the lunch. The road goes along the area that lines with small hills with different layers or in strange shapes, which are formed by water erosion. There are bushes on the land, and I saw tents of shepherds near the hill occasionally, although this is a main road, but it has very less traffic, and sometimes you can find a small hill just next to the road which you can hide yourself if you do wild camping. .....

Leaving from the green Meski, I have backed to the yellow-grey area. This route is more scenic than the last one, sometimes climb over a valley or along the river which is covered with countless palm trees. It was harvest season for dates, dates with different colors, yellow, orange, brown, etc, were drying on the roof or ground, but there were not many people around. It was a relax 25km ride to Aoufous, this hidden village in a valley was surprisingly lively, seemed everyone was busy for trading dates. ..... See More

2 weeks after the magnificent landscapes of Imilchil and Dades Gorge, it’s time to go back to ‘normal’ places. Several hundreds km asphalt road in a vast and flat desert-like area from Tinghir to Merzouga, and those Oasis towns are quite interesting but there are not many reasons to stop. ..... See More

Touring Morocco by Bicycle

I have travelled by bicycle in more than a dozen countries. Several places are my favorite ones, Taiwan for its easy-going atmosphere, Mongolia for its vastness, Kyrgyzstan for its beautiful nature, and Uzbekistan for its historical monuments and people’s hospitality. After spending more than three months in Morocco, I found it has all elements of these places. ..... See More

不捨地離開Merzouga,踩著沉悶的平路到35公里外的Rissani,一個塵土飛揚的小城市,吃過午餐繼續上路,路上開始看到些矮樹叢,兩旁有些被水沖刷成層層的小山,或是奇形怪狀的山丘,每隔不遠就看到山邊有當地人的小帳篷,雖然是國道,但車流很少,旁邊有時會有小丘,是個十分適合露營的路段。 ..... See More

離開綠意盎然的Meski營地,又回到黃黃灰灰的大地,風景比上一段路好,時而翻過山谷,時而沿山谷走,有些山谷看不到河流,卻種滿伸延著看不到底的棕櫚樹,剛好是棗子收成季節,屋頂平地都曬著黃色,橙色,棕色,各種顏色的棗子,卻很少看到人,輕鬆地踩到25公里外的Aoufous,這個山谷中的一個小村落,比想像中熱鬧,似乎當地人都忙於買賣著棗子。 ..... See More

正所謂「吊頸都要抖氣」,經過壯觀的Imilchil和Dades Gorge,好像是時侯要「抖抖氣」了。由Tinghir到Merzouga,數百公里的路都是在平坦一望無際的乾旱地帶,路上的綠洲,對剛剛走進沙漠的我還算有點新鮮感,但也沒有什麼必須停下的理由。 ..... See More
