For Trekking Atlas Mountains you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.
Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days. On mule treks you usually have the choice of staying in Berber Guesthouse/with families or wild camping in 2-person tents. In addition to regular packing, here is a Check List for Atlas Trekking:
Early in the morning, from Marrakech , we start our journey to cross the High Atlas Mountains (Tizi-n-Tichka at 2260mt high). 30 Km before reaching Ouarzazate the gate of the desert we stop for a visit to the prominent Kasbah of Ait-Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site. After lunch in Ouarzazate, we will take you through the famous Draa Valley. On the way, we visit Tamegroute, the old Koranic library and the village of green pottery and ceramic made by the locals. Arrival in Zagora, take camels to admire the sunset and spend the night under the camp.
On the second day, wake up early to enjoy a spectacular sunrise followed by breakfast. You’ll ride the camels back to meet your driver. The drive back will take you along the Draa Valley, with breaks to take in the views and for lunch, before returning to Marrakech via Tizi n Tichka Pass.
