A Journey Into The
Atlas Mountains of Morocco
Morocco is an exotic land that has lured many travelers over the centuries, but never more so than in the last decade.
Despite being located on the west coast of North Africa, just a short hop away from the south coast of Spain and Western Europe, one footstep into Morocco can transport you to the sandy lands of the Middle East. Mystical and exotic, with a pinch of spice, the country and its culture offer an allure that’s difficult to define.
Most first-time visitors are drawn to Morocco’s chaotic cities, including Marrakech, Fez, and Casablanca. While these bustling metropolises provide a healthy dose of Moroccan culture, it’s in the wilderness outside the cities where the REAL magic lies. Many tourists take a camel trek into the desert, sleeping under a blanket of stars. But I chose to take to the hills, to discover the rustic beauty of the Atlas Mountains.
