The drive across this plateau is remarkable, since it is roadless, off the grid, and bare.
“Although well traveled by tourists, Morocco remains a country where secret places abound,” writes Lawrence Osborne, author of The Forgiven. “The desert is vast, as are the Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains, and here, far from the cities and cultural centers, one can find places removed from the camera-wielding crowds. Admittedly, many Berber desert towns are popular with tourists; they’re reached via the modern-day equivalent to the camel: the air-conditioned bus. But travelers equipped with their own four-wheel drive can move beyond the more traversed watering holes. The deep desert beckons.”
