The climb is a bit hard for unfit people but the view at the top is amazing, you can see the whole city and take lovely pics. And if your lucky there will be a band at the top playing music.

A short walk above the town to view the city. Best for sunset and unobstructed views of the Chefchaouen Medina.

A comfortable 20 minute walk/hike to the mosque. I'm age 64 and had no problems. You do it for the view, not the mosque, which is closed. Bring some water if you go during the heat of the day. This is the spot where you...More

Its a 15 minute hike up from just outside the medina/near the ras el maa waterfall. The mosque itself is not particularly ‘waw’: its very small and was closed when we got there. But the views of the blue washed medina is great.

Most people shlep up the path to the mosque for the sunset view. As it happens it was overcast when we ascended, so no spectacular 'fireworks' but nice hike anyway with good view looking back at the picturesque blue-washed town.

Its a small trek of 20-30 minutes from center of Chefchaouen and its really worth it. You are going up through the city direction Ras El Ma'a, and then cross the river there are steps in the beginning, and follow by path on the slope...More

This is a walk, not a hike though it is all uphill. Go early as it can get hot. View of the valley is great!

Easy walk. Not to far and a small climb. Also easy for children and older people. The mosque is not really interesting but the view is great.

Can't get a better spot to have the full view of the blue city. Quite some walk so better start near sunset to avoid the heat. Bring water as not really any shops once you start climbing. A short rest at top is quite enjoyable.

It's a bit of a challenge for the elderly but I made it up at age 72. Stop and take in the views as you climb the paths and the steps. Go early before it gets too hot - well worth the effort!
