Divers mountains to trek, climb, and hike
For those who love mountain tour, Morocco has a wide range of extraordinary mountains that provide a deep serenity. Mount Toubkal or Jbel Toubkal is the highest mountain in the country, located in the high Atlas Mountains. Also, in the north of Morocco, Rif Mountains are the great spot for outdoor adventures and activities. Easily reached from Chefchaouen, the blue city. This is in addition to the George Todgh, a natural series of limestone trench that separates the High Atlas from the Sahara Desert. Mountains hiking, trekking, climbing, biking, and horse riding are the most popular activities to enjoy in Morocco’s mountains. ( for more details take a look to Mountains Tours )

Merzouga or Erg Chebbi, Zagora, and Chegaga are the best Sahara destinations to experience. There are different ways to enjoy the impressive desert of Morocco: camel trekking, hiking by foot in the golden dunes, basking in the sun during the day and sleeping under the winkling stars at night, sailing deeply across the sand by a motorcycle, and enjoying Berber folk and bivouacking.

The fact that Morocco has the old imperial cities is what makes it rich in history and culture. Fes, Rabat, Marrakesh, and Meknes are collectively known as Morocco’s old imperial cities. And, all of these cities are characterized by many interesting historical attractions, including the old Medinas, ancient mosques with stunning architecture, old monumental gates, vibrant souks with traditional handicrafts, and so on.

Excellent shopping & Unique souvenirs to buy
It would be a challenge to walk around the old Medinas and the souks of Morocco without shopping for souvenirs and other stuff. Morocco is largely known for its charming souks, the traditional marketplaces where you can find so many souvenirs and attractive stuff to buy include old decorative carpets, tradition and modern clothes, Baskets, Leather Slippers, Berber musical instruments, pillow covers, spices, lamps, traditional Kaftan, Leather Poufs, Rugs, Ceramics, Brassware, and so on.
