Valley in 1,500 m Close to Marrakesh; fantastic geological formations with different kinds of minarals (e.g. silver, salt, copper). Volcanic mountains and possibilities for trekking and hiking tours.

Travel up the mountain by car for around a hour. And hike will take you a good hour if you fit and healthy. Very scary if your scared of heights. I would not advise to do this if you don't like heights at all. Slippery...More
