Morocco – Climbing the Atlas Mountain

Posted by

The owner of the Riad ‘Rashid’ was kind enough to take us to the Atlas Mountains. Before heading there, we stopped at an outdoor local market where the natives were getting ready for the Eid festival.

Rashid explained the culture and the lifestyle of the Moroccans in Marrakesh and outside the red city. We continued our journey to the Atlas Mountain and enjoyed the view. When we arrived at our destination, Rashid advised us what direction to climb so we can reach the Ouzoud Waterfalls. It was quite an adventure and it was worth  seeing the waterfalls.

We got down the mountain and walked to a restaurant to have lunch/ dinner before heading back to the city. The journey was spectacular, the view, the scenery was very unique. I can’t think of any other place that can be comparable to Morocco. We highly recommend hiking at the Atlas Mountain and the effort to reach the waterfall is totally worth it.
