Erg Chebbi, Merzouga, Fes

What is the Merzouga desert? If you ask this question to Morocco desert lovers you will quickly notice the importance that it holds for this North African country with many deserts. Situated on the edge of the Sahara, in the extreme south of Morocco, it is a real paradise in all senses and all aspects. The presence of dunes, from up to 10 meters (30 feet) high to jagged rocks and mountains with deep gorges, makes it a favorite spot for lovers of trekking. The desert is a big favorite place for paragliders from all over the world. It is famous for the routes where passengers are transported on camelback or on a desert jeep, guided by experienced drivers to panoramic viewpoints where the landscape is magical, where nothing is seen for miles and miles, absolutely in all directions. These destinations give a sense of limitless space, which will give a relaxing feeling and resolve any problematic thoughts. It is a positive feeling which can take a few days to spontaneously disappear: a person relaxes, accepts, and appreciates life with all its joys. After a bit of introduction, we will now talk about the destination which we think is particularly interesting: Merzouga. In the Merzouga region (actually we consider it a small desert town), there are endless sand spots where visitors can admire unique panoramic views. Furthermore, it represents a real paradise for lovers of kite surfing. Other activities are very interesting. For example, the sunrise and sunset dune of Erg Sidi Khaled is one of the best places in Merzouga to enjoy these events, and it is possible to see the dunes all naked as their reddish color is intensified by the dawn light and at midday by the burning sun. Hotels in Merzouga are a perfect mix of comfort and relaxation and visitors will get many suggestions about activities to entertain at any time.
