Morocco

Description

Morocco

The Kingdom of Morocco is a largely mountainous country, bordering on both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Most famous mountain range are the Atlas Mountains, which Morocco shares with Algeria and Tunisia. The Atlas run like a backbone across the country from northeast to southwest, and are home to Morocco's highest mountain Jbel Toubkal (4167 m). Starting from the northeast, the Atlas Mountains are sub-divided into Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti-Atlas.

A second important mountain range are the Rif Mountains in the north of Morocco, bordering on the Mediterranean. It has interesting rock formations and gorges, and highest peak is Jbel Tidiquin (2448 m).

Hiking is popular in Morocco, and treks are possible in both the Atlas and Rif mountain ranges, staying overnight in huts (refuges), camping in tents and staying at rural homes. Best season for trekking in the mountains is April to October.
