  Village, Atlas Mountains
by Paul2001

The Atlas Mountains are a superb location to go hiking. The region is just now being discovered as a possible tourist destination and is very rustic. In some villages like the one I stayed in the lifestyle of the locals has barely changed for over the past hundreds of years. Guides can be hired at various trekking outfits throughout the mountain range. It cost me about $60.00 Cdn for a guide and mule to carry my bags. The great disappointment of my trip to Morocco was that I was not able to spend more time in these beautiful mountains because I was so sick and because the weather turned rather foul. In fact there was serious flood just after I left.
I have included more pictures of the Atlas mountains in a travelogue section.

Directions: I went hiking in an area a couple of hours drive Northeast of Marrakesh. The range itself in very large and extends for several hundred miles along the length of the country.
