Beautiful if you like landscape, just makes for slow ride if you are not. Our tour with Morocco Private Excursions took us through the High Atlas Mountains..many view..many stops for pictures. Pastures full of goats and sheep some cattle grazing on fields of green.

We took a day trip from Marrakesh over the mountains to Ouarzazate. Undoubtably the real "highlight" was the journey through the mountains. The mountain pass road seems to wind onwards and upwards forever. You get glimpses of villages clinging to the mountainside, villagers toiling in...More

We did a day's trip to this mountain without booking in advance. We got a guide on arrival who was quite knowledgable as he was from the village. Quite scary activity I must confess especially going up the slippery rocks but was worth it as...More

I don't know about the Atlas Mountains, but in Morocco, you find cats everywhere, streets, cafes, restaurants, etc. I too have a cat phobia and it's very difficult and hard for me and my friends to go eat out, but I still do... More

I suggest you book an organized tour, or better yet hire a tour guide. Most taxis will rip you off. I also usually take horse carriages instead of taxis and I find them to be the best means of transportation.
