Tafraout is the pearl of Anti Atlas Mountains.

On the other side of the famous village of Aguerd Ouadad is the mountain shaped like Napoleon’s hat ' is the Ameln valley dominated by its tallest peak Jebel Lkest with its impressive 'laughing lion' rock formation. This is the land of the argan and the almond trees that flower between January and March, it offers a unique landscape sought by lovers of nature. Each year Tafraout is the popular haunt for hundreds of retired campers, from all corners of Europe who come to spend their weeks in this paradise of tranquility and serenity.
