The golden sand dunes of Merzouga is one of the largest expanses of sand in Morocco and is located at the extreme south of the Tafilalt valley, the cradle of ancient civilization of Morocco, where the Oued Ziz meets the Oued Ghris, before disappearing into the desert. It is an extremely varied site and ideal for a Saharan hike.
