High Atlas Overview
Also referred to as the Grand Atlas, High Atlas, the highest mountain range of North Africa is one of the most recommended places to visit in Morocco for trekkers. This mountain range diagonally stretches 1000 kilometers across the country with its sharp Jurassic peaks acting as a barrier between the infringing Sahara and the calm Mediterranean weather. The high altitudes of the mountain receive heavy snowfall during the winters and offer excellent winter sports opportunities, such as skiing and snowboarding.

The High Atlas will also impress you with its postcard-perfect kasbahs, including Telouet, Ouarzazate, Tifoultoute, and Ait Ben Haddou. Other scenic attractions in High Atlas include the cascading Ouzoud Waterfalls and the gorgeous Dades Valley.
