Embark on an incredible hiking adventure in southern Morocco and explore the stunning Jbel Saghro mountain range. The allure of Jbel Saghro lies in its exceptional geology and diverse landscapes. With rugged plateaus, towering cliffs, deep gorges, and dramatic peaks, this volcanic massif offers a unique and captivating experience. As you traverse this remarkable terrain, you'll encounter camel caravans, picturesque groves of boxwood bushes, and breathtaking conglomerate monoliths. Bask in the warm glow of the sun and feel the whispers of the nearby Sahara Desert. From September to May, we invite you to embark on a journey to Saghro, a region located in the south-central High Atlas Mountains, just before the vast Draa Valley and the expansive desert beyond.
