The Deep South
The southern half of Morocco, known as the Deep South, extends from Ouarzazate to the Southern tip of the Moroccan Sahara. This Deep South is characterized by oasis, beautiful Southern Kasbah architecture, the High Atlas Mountains, camels and year-round sun and warm weather. Whether visiting the studios of Ouarzazate or the Painted Rocks of Tafraoute, the Deep South is an enchanting place with much to offer.
The Grandmother of Marrakech, Taroudant is a captivating walled city in the Deep South, in the Souss Valley. The city is off the main tourist circuits, helping it stay slower paced and more authentic. It is known for its beautiful architecture and its rich handicraft tradition. The souk and the city's central mosque are the main attractions. The surrounding area of the Souss Valley is equally beautiful, with a river flowing through the semi-arid terrain and nourishing beautiful patches of lush vegetation against the backdrop of the High Atlas Mountains.
