Excursion to Sidi Flah

One-day excursion on foot or riding a mule to reach the charming small village of Sidi Flah located at the edge of the Dades stream at about 15 km of track road from Sawadi. The excursion leaves Sawadi by motorcar in the morning to meet the mule drivers waiting on the banks of the Dades stream at the Sidi Flah bridge (about 10 km of secondary road from Skoura).

The group then travels by foot or riding mules on small path long the course of the Dades until it reaches Sidi Flah. Depending on the season, it is often possible to swim in the stream as it meanders forming beaches on its shores. There is only an occasional small village and no major road and certainly no tarred road along the trek.

Lunch can be a picnic or can be organized at some local person’s home. A car (not included in the budget) is needed to transport the group at the start of the excursion and to pick it up at Ouled Merzoug at the return.

The rates for two persons on foot is 1,200 dhs and for four is 1,600 dhs ; travelling on mules, the rate is 1,600 dhs for two persons and 2,100 dhs for four.
