RECOMMENDED TREKS IN THE JEBEL SAGHRO


The Jebel Saghro is a mountain range between the High Atlas and the Sahara and is separated from the High Atlas by the valleys of the Dades and the Draa. Scenically it is an area of dramatic contrasts : palm trees, rose hedges, oases and stark, barren volcanic mountains and mud brick villages. Highlights include a glimpse of the Tadaout n'Tablah mountains and an amazing upright rock pinnacle named 'Bab n'Ali' - translated as the 'Gates of Ali'.
It is very hot in the summer and can be bitterly cold in winter. For this reason a good time to visit is from October to March when temperatures during the day are around 20 degrees Centrigrade, though the nights are well below freezing.
For trekkers who want to get off the beaten track Jebel Sahro is ideal. The highest point of the Sahro is 2712m with most passes between 1500m and 2500m. Most of the walking is easy with about 6 hours walking each day – leaving plenty of time for enjoying the scenery and relaxing at the end of the day.
