Walking in Morocco’s Atlas mountains

​Morocco’s rugged High Atlas region, and the desert that lies just to its east, is home to the country’s most raw and spectacular scenery. Villages snuggle into deep valleys or cling precariously to mountain slopes. Snow-capped peaks shimmer on the horizon, while below a carpet of lush green fields rolls out before you. This is the number one destination in  Morocco  for outdoor activities, and the attractions of hiking and mountain biking bring thousands of outdoor enthusiasts here every year. Even if working up a sweat isn’t your thing, this region has plenty to offer. The kasbahs of Ouarzazate, Ait Ben Haddou, Tifoultoute, and Telouet should convince even the most seasoned city slicker that there are plenty of things to do
