Anti Atlas “Paradise Valley"

A scenic drive through the Anti Atlas Mountains proceeds the walk. You may choose to stop to look at places of interest such as a visit to an important religious site (a Zaouia), a watering hole, threshing circles and learn about the harsh conditions in which women and children survive in this arid region - most of the men move to the cities to find work.

Please Note: Naturally Morocco's excursions are only available as part of a package booked through us that includes accommodation and transport.

Paradise Valley

 

Overview

The hike takes you up a beautiful palm filled gorge in a remote part of the Anti-Atlas Mountains accessed by newly metalled dead end roads. The advised and most scenic version of the walk involves starting about 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Taroudant (a little longer if coming from Agadir), descending into the gorge and then walking upstream. Alternatives are starting just over an hour's drive south of Taroudant and ending 1 hour 45 minutes' drive away. When the traverse is tackled in this sequence it involves a steep ascent at the end of the walk but if a gentler walk is preferred the walk may be reversed.

Interesting wildlife including rare birds of prey such as Bonnelli's Eagles and Kingfishers may be seen.

Normal timing: 9am - 6pm. 

What's included: Guide, driver and transport.
