After our eventful day in Marrakesh came to a close, we set our gaze towards the Atlas Mountains for a day trip to the home of North Africa’s very interesting nomadic indigenous people, the Berbers.
One of the taxi drivers that drove us heard of our ambitions to explore the Atlas mountains, and offered us a day trip there alongside short pit stops to see shops and crafts of the locals.
And so off we went, with me calling shotgun, and some cool views of the approaching Atlas mountains!
We made our first pit stop after a few hours of driving at a local grocery store where we could pick up refreshments, but also climb up to the roof to get a view of the surrounding area.
An hour drive further in , we made a stop for lunch, at a picturesque restaurant right next to a mountain stream, who needs tap water when you’ve got the source right there!
Once we’d filled our bellies with energy, it was time to set off for our expedition up the mountain! Our part human, part mountain goat guide Ali lead the way towards the hidden waterfall in the mountain side.
Not too long later and the source of the stream is found!
But it doesn’t end there! The climb goes on and assistance is close by , in the form of a ladder.
The climb eventually leads to a flat area with a large boulder that presents a great photo opportunity for something like this.
That wraps it up! It was a short trip but a nice way to see the other side of Morocco!
