Where to go in Morocco?
Geographically, the country divides into four basic zones: the coast, the great imperial cities; the Rif and Atlas Mountains; and the Sahara desert.
In general, the coast is best enjoyed in the north at Tangier, Asilah and Larache, and in the south at El Jadida, Essaouira, perhaps the most easy-going resort. Agadir and Taghazout, the main package-tour resorts, are also favoured by most of the tourists.
In the outstanding cities of Fez, Marrakesh, Rabat and Meknes lie the charming view of Morocco. They are the great imperial capitals of the country’s various dynasties. The cities contain the most popular historical monuments that worth visiting.
The Atlas- Mountains or the highest mountain range, and a trekker’s paradise from spring to autumn. The High Atlas runs diagonally across Morocco encircling Marrakesh to the south and east from the Atlantic Coast just north of Agadir to Khenifra in the northeast. Its peaks act as a weather barrier between the mild, Mediterranean climate to the north and the encroaching Sahara to the south.
In its highest reaches, snow falls regularly from September to May, allowing for winter sports in Oukaïmeden, while year-round rivers flow northwards towards Marrakesh creating a network of fertile valleys – the Zat, Ourika, Mizane and Ouirgane. Happiest of all is the secluded valleys of the central High Atlas, which include Zaouiat Ahansal and Aït Bougomez.
The Erg Chebbi dunes are located forty kilometres from Erfoud, near the town of Merzouga. Historically, they are famous for their great height and size; they can rise up to one hundred fifty meters high in some places, are twenty-two kilometres long, and five kilometres wide. getting to the dunes was a hardship on Moroccans and other traders passing through Erg Chebbi, as they followed the Saharan Caravan Route to carry salts, gold, slaves, and spices to Timbuktu.
When you go there, you will know what real authenticity is about. Have you ever imagined being in a place where you can’t hear any sound you’re used to? Only the silence… Have you ever imagined a landscape so huge that you can’t see the end of it? Have you ever seen so many stars that you feel as you were floating in space? There are no words to describe its wideness or the sensations it’ll bring to you. Because there’s no place that would be able to make you feel as much and would be able to leave you without a breath.
