trekking in morocco mountains
High above Morocco, the sun-scorched homeland of the ancient Berbers is where trekkers come to experience weird geology in a warm climate. And if scaling peaks at 4,000 metres is beyond you, take a more leisurely 4WD tour, or head for the sensual, sumptuous delights of Marrakech and simply indulge yourself.
The Atlas Mountains stretch for 1,200 miles from the Atlantic port of Agadir to the Tunisia. But Morocco is, arguably, where the Atlas range is at its most interesting. Within Morocco, the Atlas is divided into several parallel ranges – the Anti, Middle and High Atlas. Of these, the High Atlas attracts most visitors, many of whom come to climb Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa at 4,167m.
