Trekking in jbel Saghro

This volcanic mountain region does not experience true winter snows like the High Atlas making it perfect for winter hiking. The Saghro is situated between the High Atlas mountains and the Sahara desert and makes a nice link to also camel trek overnight and explore the Erg Chebbi dunes near Merzouga. You’ll completely traverse the Saghro Massif walking. High uplands and volcanic monoliths resemble the U.S. southwest with soaring mesas, sparse vegetated plateaus, hidden springs and canyon oasis where you can freely ramble. You’ll meet and have tea with Ait Atta nomads living in this harsh and remote landscape. Jackal, fox, wolf, toads, frogs, wild sheep, gazelle, vulture, Buzzard and the rare Bonelli-eagle survive here. Trees include date palms, acacia, tamarisk and oleander.
