We had a great trek organized by Trekking Toubkal Company. Thanks to Houssain and our great guide Mohamed.
It was an amazing trek. We found it quite physically challenging but it was well worth the effort to see the otherworldly scenery and landscape. I highly recommend going to see the Berber villages and valley in the High Atlas Mountains.
