Valley of Tassaout Trek

Berber Spring ( Tassaout valley, High Atlas mountain)

The High Atlas is sometimes called the « roof of Morocco » or the « roof of North Africa. » It forms a huge barrier, about 750 km, between the north and south.
The Atlas is not only an important place for grazing, but also became an open space where we can practice a variety of activities (Trekking, climbing….).It still offers a good opportunity to make more trips.
Not far from Marrakesh, the central High Atlas preserves wild places between gorges, high plateaux, fields, magnificent landscapes, Berber villages… so a great adventure and nice trip is waiting for you!!!
