trek description

A part of this two day trek leads across the Ouirgane National Park.

Ouirgane area is significant because of its red colour; its slopes are covered with juniper trees and dotted with traditional flat-roofed houses made of stone. One of the villages has a big hammam (steam bath), which can be visited as a part of the trekking route. The big waterfall is one of the highlights of this hike.

This trek offers a chance to experience a Berber way of living, eat local tajine and enjoy the tranquility of the mountains.
