The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range
across a northern stretch of Africa
extending about 2,500 km (1,500 miles)
The Atlas ranges separate the Mediterranean
coastlines from the
Desert. The mountains are
divided into additional and separate ranges,
including the High Atlas, Middle Atlas,
High atlas its self is divided into :
Western High Atlas :
In the west lies
the oldest portion of the range.
Several peaks in this
area exceed 4000 m,
point is the Jbel Toubkal
at 4167 m, which is visible from the city of Marrakech.
Jbel Toubkal lies in the Toubkal national
Central High Atlas :
A solid chalk
mass morphologically dominated by tabular
zones reaching an altitude of 2,500 m
extends from Azilal to Ouarzazate. Here, the
contrasting landscapes remind visitors of
the Colorado, with its high plateaux, its
gorges and box canyons,
and its peaks sometimes splintered by
Jebel Mgoun at 4068 m being the highest peak in this
part of the High Atlas.
Eastern high atlas
which is the Imlchil
extends from the Atlantic Ocean
in the southwest of Morocco toward the
northeast to the heights of Ouarzazate and further east to the city of Tafilalt
(altogether a distance of approximately 500 kilometres/310
miles). In the south it borders the Sahara.
The easternmost point of the anti-Atlas is
the Djebel Sarhro mountains and its eastern
boundary is set by sections of the High Atlas range.
Jbel Siroua is set as a
bridge between the High
atlas and the Anti-Atlas.
Our shop, Atlas Trekking Equipment was set up by Mohamed and Paul,
two mountaineering friends and colleagues. We both lead and guide
groups in the mountains and both wish to share our experiences with
