Several good hotels aiming at tourists wishing to get the very most out of the nature excursion. Hotels stretch for 14 to 63 km from Boumalne du Dades, see list for each hotel. Most hotels, and the best, are found about 27-28 km, and the last point for accommodation is the miserable village of Msemrir, with two basic but acceptable hotels.
Restaurants and alternatives
Several hotels serve food, and some offer half board, a few even has this as obligatory. Little to worry about, no option here appears even remotely overpriced!
Forget about your car, and walk through Dades until you reach the area of the Todra. Trained walkers should be able to do this easily in a day, as it is no more than 63 km to the "end" at Msemrir. Hitch hiking is possible for parts of the journey.
Boumalne has banks offering necessary services. Otherwise, the nearest ones are in Ouarzazate, 115 km west and Tinerhir, 53 km east.
No regular transport, so your own vehicle, your feet or a rented taxi is what you need to enter the Dades. The last is arranged in Boumalne du Dades.
Driving can be dangerous outside summer. Crossing the mountain is done only in 4x4s.
