Mountain range in morocco
Visible from both the Mediterranean and the Sahara, Mountain range in morocco are as iconic as medinas and tajines – and they’ve been around much longer than either. The High Atlas range rolls from snow-covered peaks such as Jebel Toubkal to Dades and Todra Gorges. Toubkal can be climbed by people in good physical condition, but if grand taxis are your preferred mode of transport, the High Atlas is still memorable.
Roads pass crumbling Kasbahs and Berber Villages, and wind up the Tizi n’Test and Tizi n’Tichka passes.
The Middle Atlas and Rif are gentler landscapes, with forests carpeting slopes and valleys. In the Middle Atlas’ alpine landscape, you might even think you’re in the Alps among flower beds in the French built resort of Ifran. The Rif, Morocco’s greenest range, is covered in wildflowers in spring.
Closer to the Sahara, the Anti Atlas is a land of jagged peaks such as quartzite Jebel L’Kest, with oasis villages in the valleys; and the wild, arid Jebel Sarhro is the home turf of the seminomadic Ait Atta.
