The Anti-Atlas mountain range lies just below the city of Agadir and to the south west of the High Atlas. Here you will find both adventure and tranquillity in the many 7000 ft mountains that run across its varied landscapes. David Wood shares photographs from a week-long trek from Ait Baha to the Ait Mansour or Teneglitche Gorge.

With adequate preparation it is possible to walk the length of the North West Anti-Atlas in a stay of less than two weeks and at little expense. In doing so you will walk through ancient villages and enjoy some of the most stunning scenery that the area has to offer, possibly also experiencing some legendary Berber hospitality along the way.

The photographs below illustrate what you might see along the 110 km walk from Ait Baha to the Ait Mansour or Teneglitche Gorge.

The journey is recorded as an exploratory one-week trek in the recently published Cicerone title ‘Walks and Scrambles in the Moroccan Anti Atlas’ and a detailed download is available for purchasers of the book.
