Located in the High Atlas Mountains south of Imilchil, Agoudal is at the junction of the Dadès and Todgha Gorges. It's one of the highest inhabited villages in Morocco, at more than 7500 feet above sea level.

My suggestion:
For fans of sporting travel, Agoudal is an ideal departure spot for mountain treks, especially during late August through early September. Remember to take a sweater, because the nights are cool, even in the summer.
My review

I spent a few days of pure relaxation in Agoudal. I enjoyed the simple life and hospitality of a Berber douar (village), in pure and unspoilt nature. During your stay in Agoudal, Morocco, I recommend exploring the area by 4x4, where you can enjoy the beautiful views from Col de Tizi-Tirherouzine.

There are many excursions there: I visited the caves of Akhiam, a little more than 4 miles from Agoudal. I felt like I was all alone in the world, set in a lunar landscape. You can also go to Imilchil and attend its moussem, or wedding festival: a celebration that takes place from 23 to 25 September.

But for young adventurers, I recommend hunting for meteorites! Agoudal villagers retell that a team of Russian speleologists discovered the remnants of a meteorite crater nearby.
