High Atlas Mountains is something got to see when you are visiting this beautiful country. I did it, and it was great decision, there is a lot to explore, the best I recommend is to get a tour.

Went on a tour to a town at the base and then ascended on foot. Stunning scenery especially as you left the town through narrow walkways through the village.

Went to the Atlas Mountains yesterday and WOW is all I have to say! Only thing I would say is wear good trainers with a grip! They don't tell you just how hard it is to climb! There are no safe routes, you climbing over...More

We took a day trip from Marrakesh over the mountains to Ouarzazate. Undoubtably the real "highlight" was the journey through the mountains. The mountain pass road seems to wind onwards and upwards forever. You get glimpses of villages clinging to the mountainside, villagers toiling in...More

We did a day's trip to this mountain without booking in advance. We got a guide on arrival who was quite knowledgable as he was from the village. Quite scary activity I must confess especially going up the slippery rocks but was worth it as...More

A must see when you are to visit Morocco but there is a catch, to appreciate the beauty of the mountains, one has to work hard and put in a lot of climbing in very high altitude. We were told that there are seven waterfalls...More

For 200 dhr/person we got a whole day full of experiences, I can't recommend this enough. We got to visit argan producers and see waterfalls, and also had a pretty good workout. This is a memory for life especially for hiking beginners as ourselves. :)

Hiya I am planning to visit the Atlas Mountains but I have a fear of cats so I was wondering would there be cats anywhere during the tour??!

I don't know about the Atlas Mountains, but in Morocco, you find cats everywhere, streets, cafes, restaurants, etc. I too have a cat phobia and it's very difficult and hard for me and my friends to go eat out, but I still do... More

I'm traveling (solo) to Marrakech in a couple of weeks. Should I book an organized tour to the Atlas Mountains or is it perfectly okay to take a taxi there and then hire a guide once I arrive? Are there taxis readily available to take you back once you're done. And how is the English there?

Response from AmNez |
I suggest you book an organized tour, or better yet hire a tour guide. Most taxis will rip you off. I also usually take horse carriages instead of taxis and I find them to be the best means of transportation.
