Some five miles on, the Mellah empties into the Ouarzazate river, and here the French-built road over the Tizi-n-Tichka branches west. On either side of the river sit two noteworthy qsars, Tikirt and Tazenntoute, both with spectacular front-on views of the snow-topped massif formed by the central High Atlas.

Tikirt's kasbah is now entirely ruined except for its six stork nests, occupied and apparently in good repair. It was here that de Foucauld rested, more than a century ago, before pushing on to Taliouine, Taroudannt, and finally Agadir. As far as it is from the road and with the river still unbridged, one can fairly ask how, if at all, the village has changed since de Foucauld's visit.

Tazenntoute's character has more clearly been touched by the hand of progress. Buses take wage laborers to Ouarzazate's booming building sites. Most recent construction, except for the whitewashed tomb of the local marabout, Sidi Ali Ou Salih, has a modern edge. Fortunately, the roar of trucks climbing a low jabal, or mountain, is muffled by the most densely planted palmery yet encountered this side of the Tizi-n-Telouet.

Just beyond the jabal lies the modern town of Ouarzazate, whose one historic feature, the Glaoui kasbah of Taourirt, has been completely rebuilt by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs. Finally here, after having passed ruined kasbah upon ruined kasbah all on the way down from their seat of power at Telouet, one can see how the Glaoui must have lived in their heyday.

If all roads north across the High Atlas are said to lead to Marrakech, then it is also true that all roads south lead through Ouarzazate to points beyond. For it is here that the main route divides and its distributaries flow in every direction.

One trail heads up the Drâa valley to Zagora, the southernmost margin of Glaoui rule, and on into the Sahara. Another follows the Dadès river past Skoura into what has become known as the "Valley of the Kasbahs." Others take off overland east to the Tafilalt oasis and west toward the port of Agadir on the Atlantic coast.

Once having reached Ouarzazate, a caravan moving south would have left behind the most dreaded perils of the journey: The threats of sudden snow in a High Atlas pass or an ambush in the Ounila's narrowest gorge would now be past. A few more easy ascents, over the Anti-Atlas's Jabal Sarhro or Jabal Bani, and you are well on your way to Timbuktu.

Atlas mountaines and surrounded terrains were motherland of Atlantis race before discovery mid-Atlantic islands by Poseidia!
ATLANTIS IS DISCOVERED LONG AGO!

Capital of Atlantis (Atlantis City) is discovered!
http://www.cosmogeology.ge/chapter-25.htm

Cosmogeological real map of Atlantis, six main rivers, two volcanoes, Pluto’s and Ammon’s (Mu) small islands and approximately places of smaller islands of Persephone. pre-flood coastal zone of North America and the magnetic field direction to the end of the last inter-flood period
Everything was started 12,500± years ego. The last global geo-catastrophe had been formed by EB geo-transfer. EB geo-transfer produces turbulent streams into E geo-sphere around magnetic nucleus. This is clue about rapid reversal event of the global magnetic field on the geological timescale.
