We depart from your riad or hotel on a one-day journey to visit the nearby Marrkech half desert area. We will head in the direction of Lake Takerkoust, a man-made lake, on the edge of the Agafay Desert that was built under the French Protectorate between 1929 – 1935 to provide Marrakech and the surrounding cities with electricity as well as to irrigate the agricultural fields in the plain of El Haouz.
In the construction of Lake Takerkoust, also referred to as Lalla Takerkoust, great care was taken to ensure that the lake would blend in with the beautiful surroundings and enhance the area. Visitors will agree that this objective was achieved and with the majestic Atlas Mountains reflecting in the tranquil waters of the lake.
Lalla Takerkoust has contributed in making this beautiful part of Morocco even more appealing.
