Jbel Sirwa trek (Jebel Siroua) - volcanic wilderness of the High & Anti Atlas mountains

jbel sirwa trek

The Jbel Sirwa trek takes you through some of the most remote volcanic terrains in Morocco. It offers a sense of wilderness that other trekking regions do not. Sirwa bridges two mountain ranges; the High and Anti-Atlas. This authentic Moroccan trek takes in many gorges and fascinating Berber villages, the summit of Jbel Sirwa not to mention the diverse rock formations and vegetation. We stay in a variety of gites and campsites moving from east to west. You will have the opportunity to go shopping in the souqs of Marrakech and enjoy some sight seeing in the Medina before your trek.
