The Ammeln Valley is becoming a magnet not only for climbers, but also for nature-lovers and hikers. A walk in the valley might start at the village of Oumesmat, where the Maison Traditionelle is well worth a visit. Wear sturdy shoes for the short walk from the car park. At the museum in a traditional Berber house, the caretakers will happily explain the old ways of the Anti-Atlas, introducing you to domestic implements, the tea ceremony, and the local women's embroidered
black wrap, the tamelheft. Express your appreciation for the tour by tipping generously. From Oumesmat you can follow paths to the neighboring villages. Taghdicte makes a good base for ambitious Anti-Atlas climbers.
