Off the High Atlas tourist trail, you will experience traditional Berber villages and culture. This trek can be turned into a private trek.
This particular trekking tour in the High Atlas is not frequented by many tourists. The Ourika Valley contains cave paintings and here you can witness the traditional life of the Berbers in their mud-brick villages, working the land with primitive tools and tending to their herds of sheep.
