This range also forms a bridge between Draa and Dades Valleys. In winter, it is the kingdom of nomads of Ait Atta that find refuge there.  Jackal, fox, wolf, toads, frogs, wild sheep, gazelle, vulture, Buzzard and the rare Bonelli-eagle survive here. Trees include date palms, acacia, tamarisk and Oleander.
