A picture story of the High Atlas Mountains
The High Atlas Mountains is just a few hours from the city of Marrakesh. You can hire a car and independently travel, or from personal experience, with a guide you will be taken to parts of the village you'll otherwise not find and be educated about the Berber's as you travel. To inspire you to spend a day on a similar journey, here are a few pictures to steal your heart. Just a short journey outside of Marrakesh we were confronted with this beautiful landscape. We visited a Berber village and its weekday markets where the Berber's purchase their produce. As you climb higher into the mountains, the scenery quickly changes. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the High Atlas Mountain. Next up, a camel ride was mandatory as we did not have time to reach the Sahara desert. So we had our dose in the Atlas Mountains. Lastly, we saw how Argan Oil is made. Here are the kernals ready for grinding to produce the oil. Morocco, you are amazing. I am excited to someday return and experience other cities we have not yet had the opportunity to explore.
