TARFRAOUTE IN ANTI-ATLAS MOUNTAINS
The Anti-Atlas is a desolate world of rocky outcrops and lunar landscapes where the contrasts are extreme. Most of the land is dry and barren, but water gathers and runs in some remote places, forming clear basins. Berber villages in the mountains are limited to few small houses surrounded by palm trees. For those who are seeking a real adventurous holiday that includes walking tours, rock climbing and biking tours, there are two great towns:Tafraoute and Siroua.
Hiking in Tafraoute mountains
Tafraoute has the most beautiful mountain range for walking and trekking tours. It is home to many untouched natural landscapes. The early spring is the best time to visit and is the time when the region celebrates the annual almond blossom festival.
