Sous Valley Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The semi-tropical Sous valley and the Anti-Atlas mountains are two of the most unique regions of Morocco. The stunning physical beauty of the country, the welcoming Berber people and the availability of cheap flights to Agadir make it an excellent introduction to Morocco.

The people of these regions have a tradition of independence from the central government, as well as an independent culture and language. The regions are dominated by the Chleuh group of tribes who speak the Tachelait Berber dialect. The Chleuh are famous for their industry and business skill, as well as for their very unique music.

The center of the region is Agadir with an international airport, buses (the train line doesn’t yet reach this city) and car rentals. The appeal of this city is small, however outside of Agadir, you can explore the splendor of the mountains and the coast. Taroudant , the ancient capital of the region, lies to the east. Surrounded by ancient ochre walls, this relaxed city is worth a stay with its old hotels, wonderful cooking and busy souk. To the south, the pink-walled city of Tiznit has an interesting atmosphere with its reputation as a center of prostitution (in the not so recent past), exquisite silver jewelry and blue men from the Sahara. The oasis village of Tafraoute is surrounded by splendid rock formations in the Anti-Atlas mountains. This region is filled with fascinating people and fantastic natural beauty, one could spend one month exploring the region and still not be full of the famous Berber tajine (stews).
