Wow what an unexpected beauty they are! I thought Morocco would be all dusty roads and desert, but how wrong i was! If you want to get a sense of the real Morocco, visiting the Atlas mountains is a must! The Berbers are very welcoming people and their villages with in the mountains are hidden treasures. We were very lucky to have a personal guide who spoke astounding English and took great care of us both, watching our every step on the rocky paths to ensure our safety. The waterfalls are pretty and refreshing stops in the African heat where people from all different cultures gather together to bask in the sun and take in the stunning views around. The souks in the mountains have the best variety too and its nice knowing your money is going to good people that need your cash rather than the harsh hagglers in inner city areas. Trekking amongst the olive and apple trees of the Atlas mountains truly was a humbling experience that took my breath away. Some of my highlights were taking a short camel ride up to the start of the trek,seeing monkeys living in the wild and enjoying a delicious Moroccan feast at the foot of the mountain whilst paddling in a stream. Next time we will make it to the top!
