near Assaka-n-Aït Ouzzine, Drâa-Tafilalet (Morocco)
Today's hike starts in Assaka N'Ait Ouzzine and follows a rocky path past orchards for several kilometres where the going is slow. A descent trail then takes you around the base of the mountain Tine Ouaiyour that is visible to your left for several hours. You then head into a scenic gorge that goes on for about an hour's hike before you hit a river bed with one building on the shoreline. The town of Irhissi is nearby (to the west?) we did not follow a boy and his donkey into the village.
We followed the river bed up stream and climbed steeply out of the valley and made it to a good campsite that had a trickle of water and level ground for our tent. Progress wasn't easy, the rocky terrain makes for a tiring day and our toughest day was only a sleep away.
Tomorrow's hike is: Saghro day 4
