Berber Villages Trekking 4d/3n

Overlooking the world from the mountain peak sets your mind free. This slightly challenging hike which composes of more ascents and descents than some of our other options, will give you plenty of moments to clear your head. The greens of junipers and pines will be quickly replaced by the browns of old houses and terraced fields of corn and barley which perfectly demonstrate the cultural adaptation to nature.
Berber villages are farming communities and terraced fields with their crops play a crucial role in the village life and economy. They are connected with ingenious irrigation channels so they are never without life giving water to the settlements.Throughout the trek it is curious to observe how the local people use the inaccessible terrain to get the most from it. All the fields are the same, but also different in detail
