The Saghro is a wild and rocky massif witch cannot forget those who visited it, it is a Dantesque region. Charles de Foucault who crossed it in part reports that this chain consists of a high plateau of an average altitude of 2000m, which is reached by long ramps successions, sometimes stony, the upper plateau has a large and green surface, ridges, bristling peaks and their volcanic masses. Our hike will take place in a pre-Saharan atmosphere and over a highest point of 2,600 m high. Only Few villages, but enough nomads from the great tribe of Ait Atta that come to graze their herds.

Departure to the Saghro massif by the famous Tichka pass, the highest pass road in Morocco. By the road of the Kasbah miles we pass by the palm of Skoura and the valley of roses, our meeting point with our team… Start of our trek. Which will unfold in a mineral landscape between the snowy mountains of the Atlas and the arid northern slopes of the Saghro?
You will walk to the foot of the mountain. You will descend on a valley of oleanders, then you cross a pass at 1900m to reach a beautiful canyon rich in almond trees cultivated around small hamlets. We arrive in the southern slope known for its impressive geological structures.
Progress always towards the East by taking a small path which passes by beautiful gorges and which will allow to reach a high plateau planted with rocky peaks dating from the Precambrian, Here nomadic families Ait Atta come settle down with their herds at the foot highlight of our itinerary.
We are on our way back to the red city, today, we are happily attacking a beautiful climb that offers us magnificent views to the borders of the great Sahara and the entire chain of the Atlas before descending to our camp near the track.
