Morocco makes mountaineering easy
I hadn't really considered Morocco as a viable destination when I was looking to embark on a trekking trip. Like many people, my first ports of call when I scoured the internet for exciting mountaineering holiday ideas were Tanzania and Nepal. Both are famous for their monstrous peaks - Kilimanjaro and Everest - but once I chanced upon a review of Morocco's Atlas mountains, my decision was made.
You see, I am not built in the same mould as famous mountaineers like Sir Edmund Hillary, so I was looking for something slightly less daunting for my first real trekking experience. Heading to the Atlas mountains proved to be an excellent choice. Here I could bask in the wondrous sights that the north African country has to offer, without fearing altitude sickness or exhaustion.
The region is absolutely beautiful and I find it far easier to enjoy my surroundings if I am not over exerting myself physically. One other major factor that had a bearing on my holiday choice was the chance to experience the Sahara desert. I've always fancied hitching a ride on a camel to travel across the great plains without a care in the world. It is a magical experience.
Another major plus point for me was the close proximity of both the Sahara and the Atlas mountains to the bustling city of Marrakech. It proved to be everything I had been expecting and more. The streets are lined with snake charmers, acrobats and other intriguing entertainers, while spending a few hours wandering around the vast array of stalls occupied by bartering locals was a real eye-opener.
It was this contrast between thriving urban life, peaceful deserts and picturesque mountains that made me fall in love with Morocco. Many holidaymakers are forced to settle for just one of the three when visiting other parts of the world, but there is ample opportunity to complete the trio and have the holiday of a lifetime in Morocco.
