Walking holidays in the Atlas mountain are often centered around the climb of Jebel Toubkal, at 4,165m, the highest mountain in North Africa. There is, however, a wide range of trekking holidays available in Morocco such as the desert range of the Jebel Sahro in the south, the best area for trekking in winter along with the Anti Atlas. The Central Atlas is home to Morocco's second highest peak, Jebel Mgoun. For those who have the time the amazing Traverse of the Atlas mountains from Mgoun to Toubkal, passing through rarely trekked areas, many tiny villages and across high plateau dotted with nomadic camel herders camps and ancient rock carvings, is rightly considered one of the world's great treks.
