Small castle above oasis
If you want to have a look into at least one oasis in the valley of Ounila and visit other nice kasbah surrounded by colorful mountains at the same time, you shall continue on from Telouet along the road number 1506 for about ten kilometers to Anemiter. Along the way, you will manage the mountain ridge separating the two valleys through almost imperceptible pass (1 920 m asl).
Even the way from Telouet to Anemiter itself is worth it. Surrounding landscape colored in red shades looks almost like from Mars. In the early evening light it is a paradise for photographers.
The road across the mountains
The road is covered with broken asphalt and so it is passable to Anemiter also for normal passenger cars. Further ahead it is passable only for off-road vehicles. The small road overcomes the mountain ridge south of the High Atlas through imperceptible pass between Telouet (1 788 m asl) and Anemiter (1 760 m asl).
In less than a quarter of an hour's drive from Telouet you will come to Anemiter towering over the green valley of Ounila.
Kasbah in Anemiter is not as big as the palace in Telouet, but its position above the valley is very nice.
Valley of Ounila
The green valley of Ounila itself would be worth detailed exploration and walking trip with ascents to the surrounding scenic hills.
After the tour around Anemiter awaits you the way back to Telouet, over whose fields raise the barren slopes of the High Atlas.
On the south side of the High Atlas you will be seeing all the time a beautiful contrast of green and yellow fields with colorful mountain slopes.
