The High Atlas
The High Atlas is home to some of the highest peaks in North Africa, a dozen of them over 13,000 feet, they form a complex of jagged ridges and deep narrow valleys running 250 miles across Morocco. Northward the mountains drop steeply, while southward they slope gradually into the hot, dry Sahara, which stretches for over a thousand miles.
From the ancient city of Marrakech, the Atlas skyline stretches across the horizon, creating a backdrop of inspiring beauty. Toubkal, North Africa’s highest mountain, is only 50 miles south of Marrakech.
