You will go on our drive up to the mountains, where many Berber villages scattered on the mountains with a fascinating houses made from mud and straw; in the middle of nowhere; thousands of satellite dishes on roofs. All this make you feel that nothing has been changed in life here through thousands years. Meanwhile donkeys and mules are still the main means of transportation among these high and tough mountains, since there are no accesses for cars and tracks.
