Mountains Of Morocco: Day 5

This will be a superb and varied day. We follow the Ameskar Gorge, through an ever-changing landscape of green fields and ochre-coloured villages. Passing the villages of M’Rabtine (1900m) and Ifkiren we make camp at the entrance to the gorge.

DO YOU KNOW: Morocco is one of only three countries to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. Do you know what the two other countries are?

ANSWER: Morocco, Spain, and France.

DID YOU KNOW: The Atlas Mountains are home to the Atlas dwarf viper. It is the smallest member of the viper family and it is found in semi-humid mountainous ranges, and can be located in areas with stones and cushion-like thorny plants.
