If you want to make a trip from Tinerhir to Merzouga or Hassi Labied, you can call Mohammed.

You can also contact Rachid from Palmeraie House to arrange this transport. (see accomodation tip Tinerhir)

There is a Berber carpet shop in the market area. The carpets were beautiful, but the Tuareg owner was the best part of the visit. He spoke excellent English, and told us stories about camels and caravans. His family owned caravans in the past, but it became too difficult to continue because of border controls, need for passports, etc. Now they own looms and cooperatives, and he travels 4-5 times per year to pick up merchandise.
They brewed tea for us—It was an elaborate process involving bellows to make the fire hotter, and much pouring back and forth. He did a low-key sales pitch as we drank our tea. There were a lot of beautiful carpets, including some interesting ones made from cactus fiber.

At the village of Boulmane, we turned off to see the Dades Gorge. After going most of the way in the bus, we had to park it and switch to rented 4x4s.
About halfway between Boulmane and the Gorge, we saw a series of caves far from the road that is a family home. The guy has 4 wives, and he raises camels and goats. (If you look carefully at picture #4, he is standing in the mouth of one of the caves.)
