Located at the meeting point of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas, near the Moroccan Sahara, the massive Sirwa culminates at 3305m Jebel Sirwa. It covers 350 km2 and is made up of both green valleys, stone villages, cliffs, gorges, plateaus, and high meadows.
Neither really desert or mountain really, mineral and austere, Jbel Saghro remains a huge unfamiliar territory, or to be discovered: Unusual gorges, plateaus dark lunar igneous rocks, discreet villages always hospitable people. But the most spectacular remains of these amazing basalt towers that offer a haven for the imagination, a dream setting and a paradise for nomadic Ait Atta who find their pastures every year …
The massive Sirwa offers impressive views of the Saharan vastness. In legendary hospitality, its people have kept alive their customs rooted in the past and you will discover another face of Morocco.
