Trail through the mountains! This route connects two of the most spectacular tourist attractions of Morocco - Marrakesh and Essaouira. Some of the villages we cross are over 3000 meters above the sea, which allows a splendid view over deep and steep valleys. Many of the paths are only used by the Berber, the native mountain people and sometimes crossing them by feet is unavoidable. From ridge paths we are able to enjoy a magnificent view over the snowy peaks of the Toubkal mountain chain and each path offers us a new landscape.
Particularly beautiful is the interplay of aridity and rich green valleys that creates amazing natural sceneries.
The mountainsides are covered with aromatic plants like thyme, lavender and rosemary and a great diversity of flowers. Big boulder fields melt together with houses of stone and clay that cover the hillsides. Indistinguishable at first glance the houses seem to be embedded in the colour of the land.
