The plateau city of Midelt, overlooking the sheer Ayashi Mountains of the High Atlas, is one of the highest and largest cities in Morocco, at about 1,500 meters above sea level. It is located in the middle of the main road connecting Fes and Meknes in the north and the desert area in the south, and has a wide range of hotels and restaurants. With its clean air and mild climate, Midelt is the perfect place to stop and rest during your trip.
The High Atlas is a major mountain range that crosses Morocco, from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Algerian border in the east. Bordered by the mountains, ancient cities flourish in the north, and a world of deserts and oases spreads out in the south. As you move eastward from the western alpine zone, where Mount Toubkal, the highest peak at 4,167 meters above sea level, is located, the forest diminishes and the dry rocky desert spreads out. The beautiful valleys and Berber villages that emerge from the rugged nature are full of attractions, and the drive from the city through the mountains to the desert is very popular.
