The Road of Ksars

The Ait Baha - Tafroute road is lined with rocky outcrops, many having fortified villages, or Ksars, on top. Some are still inhabited and some are crumbling to nothing as piste returns to the earth of which it is made if it is not renewed regularly. The most spectacular Ksar at Tisougane has its Kasbah converted to a hotel although at £35+ for B&B only with shared bathroom we were not tempted. This is just as well as the new "drive" I've been watching them build various times we drove past turned out to be a very long flight of steps.
