Ouirgane is one of Moroccan luxurious bases for mountain adventures. It does not have the highest peaks, but it has a glorious choice of charming hotels and day trips that take in captivating scenery toward the mountainous Tizi-n-Test to the south.
We start our Asni and Ouirgane day trip from Marrakech at 09am to the valley of Asni Ouirgane to see the one of the most beautiful countryside in Morocco and the lake that fills the fall floor. About an hour from Marrakech lies the magnificent green valley of Ourigane, hidden in the foothills of Mount Toubkal. You can visit the souk Tahanout (Tuesday and Saturday) before taking the drive through the river gorges Ghezaia on the way to Asni, famous for amethyst, for a picnic lunch while enjoying the fabulous mountain scenery.

The Asni and Ouirgane Valley known as The Happy Valley with its amazing greenery, wild and flora, it is an ideal start point for treking lovers.
