Tafraout is located some 130km south of Agadir by Ait Baha and about 100 km east of Tiznit. This mountainous region is well known for its pink granite rocks that surround small valleys of date palms, argan trees, almond trees and so on. In Tafraut, few people are engaged in agriculture as most of the tafrawis trade in the big cities of the Kingdom or even abroad.
