Erg Chigaga is golden! The soft yellow sand dunes seem as eternal as time itself. To reach this desert of dreams and stars, travel through the beautiful Draa Valley with its lush date palm oases. Visit ancient kasbahs that once guarded this caravan route. From the village of M’Hamid, you can either take a short camel trek to Erg L’Houdi and overnight in a nomad encampment, or if you prefer, enjoy local hospitality in one of the hotels, and travel next morning by 4X4 into Erg Chigaga for a half-day excursion to Iriki Oasis and into the dunes.
