Starting in Erfoud, after many kilometres of stony desert making for a rather harsh landscape, one is struck by the lushness of the pink and golden sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. This is the only erg (dune sea) in the Moroccan Sahara. It stretches from north to south for about 40km, to the west of the Ziz River palm groves, its sand mass rising at times to 170m.
Musee des Sources de Lalla Mimouna
Musee des Sources de Lalla Mimouna is one the best and famous place in Errachidia that you should really pay a visit. It kind of like a museum with a desert spring source. In this place, you will be able to feel passion about the heritage and culture of Errachidia.
It's thanks to the presence of the Rheris and the Ziz Rivers that here, on the edge of the desert, extends the vast Tafilalt palm grove, about a hundred kilometres south of Errachidia. Sedentary people and nomads live here thanks to the 900,000 date palms whose fruit is a staple of their diet. Nearby is a completely different landscape, where the golden reflections of the Erg Cherbi sand dunes stretch out to infinity
