Gravity defying rock stacks in all shades of red look as though they’ll crumble in front of your eyes and are deeply cut by gullies created by the persistent action of the river and weather.

The cedar Forest in Morocco is a woodland area in the Middle Atlas Mountain Range. Home of the tallest and the oldest cedar tree in Africa, which unfortunately died since 2002, named as Gouraud Cedar, It has giving this name after the French general Henri Gouraud. This forest is located on National Route 8 between Azrou and Ifrane. The area where the cedar forest is has such a fresh air and good weather, an amazing place to go and trek, all you can see is hills covered by the cedar trees, and animals like the Barbarian Apes and wild boars. There is nothing relaxing more than trekking a calm forest, birds sang and stunning view of elevated cedar trees like skyscrapers.
When I saw the dunes I remained speechless. Literarly. Fantastic people make you feel like at home, a must-do trip to the gold dunes for over night in a real nomadic tent with a real berber delicious supper and at last for the most stunning, a breath taking sunrise seen from the Biggest of all dunes. Go some 5 km further from Hassilabied to see Gnawa people who perform some traditional dance. Try to destinguish which one is the best among all the berber whiskey (green tea with mint and a looooot of sugar) you are offered anyway you go. Reliable, gentle people;clean cozy rooms and the most superb cuisine (oh how I miss their tajine!!!). I'll be back there for sure
