Choose your time of departure and one of Nkhila's local guides will accompany you on this 3 to 4 hour circuit. The scenery is diverse from a high plateau hill viewpoint to a seasonal riverbed shaded by impressive rock formations. As well as seeing an ancient marabout (shrine), we pass through two small douars (villages) and enjoy several nice views of the camp and distant Atlas mountains en route.
