We are traveling to Marrakech next few weeks , and we are interested in a 3 or 4 days desert trip departue from Marrakech to merzouga desert.
we seached on google and we get this itinerary with :

Day 1: Marrakech - dades valley

Day 2: Dades valley - Merzouga desert

Day 3: Merzouga - Marrakech

My quiestions are :

How cold is the atlas mountains in February ?

3 days is enough to descouver the sahara desert and the berber villages ?

The last day (Marrakech - Merzouga) for how many kms we have to drive ??

Thank you for your help

    the drive for Merzouga to Marrakech is long and can be painful. I'll sugget to allow for another night in dades or ouarzazate

    on a 3 days desert tour , is the same itinerary ; really the last day you'll drive from Merzouga to Marrakech ( - 500kms) but the moroccan travel agencies and companies use 4x4 , so it's comfortable.
