High Atlas Lodges Trek

High Atlas Lodges Trek through the spectacular High Atlas Mountains. The Lodges of the High Atlas is one of the most scenic hikes in Morocco, and is also an immersion into the culture of the Berber people, Morocco’s original inhabitants. Few roads penetrate this craggy mountain stronghold, where the agrarian way of life has changed little in over a hundred years. As you trek, see Berber women in brightly colored dresses tending fields amid picturesque mud-brick villages, and higher up meet nomadic shepherds in their summer pastures.

Toubkal ascent 2 days A few days ago we hiked to the summit of Mt. Toubkal in two days. The surroundings are simply beautiful and we had an amazing time! Since we are relatively inexperienced, our guide Mohamed was very helpful and patient. Mohamed and his team prepared wonderful meals and provided us with a good tent to spend the night. For people who are inexperienced in multi-day hiking (just like us), we would recommend the Toubkal ascent in 3 days. We think this will make the hike more pleasant and balanced. Overall, we would highly recommend Mohamed and his team as your guide in the Atlas mountains.
