Overview
One of the best excursions departing from Marrakesh to the High atlas mountain with its glistening snowy peaks soaring above the desert plains , is without doubt the roof of morocco reaching over 4167 meters in height , at the foot of these cragged peaks lie gentle valleys , filled with flowers during springtime , dotted with small villages and immense granaries , the scenery is quite magnificent and visitors discover the unexpected marvels of a mountain range considered as one of the most geological mysteries in the world .
What to Expect
Around 08:30am the tour starts from Marrakesh straight to Ourika valley a kind of splendid area between the Atlas mountains famous of  its fortified houses built of clay and straw, inhabited by Berber population who have existed in Morocco thousands of years before, and maintained intact their customs and traditions through time.  Our first stop will be an extraordinary beautiful panoramic view of the green fields of vegetables and cereals , forage, and - of course - olives, which is a typical product of the valley, some panoramic views deserve to be on your camera, then for interested people, there will be a stop at the cooperative of Argan oil to get a sufficient explanation about how those berber women, do to hand-crack the Argan nuts and squeeze them between two special stones , a technique they've used for centuries .  Afterwards drive to the Setti Fatma waterfalls, a tour with a local mountains guide, that lasts 90 minutes approximately,  Back from this nice trek we will drive by off-road through mountains, for a chance to admire the beauty of the atlas nature with its different colors, and numerous villages where clay-color homes are still standing after many centuries; Then head to a small village called Sidi Fares, for lunch in a traditional Berber house that looks out on the high Atlas Toubkal mountain with a height of 4167 meters also known as the highest peak in north Africa.  Then enjoy  a delicious taste of the real Berber gastronomy: the menu includes a Berber Tagine, couscous and fruits , then comeback to Marrakesh via the Asni valley and Tahannaout village.
