the range of the Anti-Atlas and region forms a bridge between the two contrasting landscapes of Morocco; the snowy peaks of the High Atlas, and the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara desert. Djebel Saghrou, meaning winter warmth, is a vast area of highlands with beautiful volcanic rock formations, basalt peaks, deep long canyons, palm oases, low laying valleys hiding large open green spaces, and lunar barren landscapes. In the winter this region provides refuge to the Nomadic Berbers, who bring their herds to avoid the harsh winters of the Atlas range.Discover the beauty of this enchanting landscape!
