Regional Overview

The Ameln Valley is a largely forested valley at 1,200 meters in the Anti-Atlas mountains of Tiznit Province.

The spectacular valley runs 12 miles east to west and is bordered on the north by the steep and formidable mountain range; L’Kest.

It is rural and traditional. The valley consists of 30+/- small Berber villages with a total population of
maybe 1,500.

The closest town of any size is Tafraout (15 km) with approx. 5,000 people. Tafraout is highly tourist-ed.

Somewhere between tradition and tourism…Somewhere between the forest and the mountains…is the Nedi (women's center and home to the Cooperative and Association).
