We don’t program this trek only for its high altitude, rugged terrain, cliffs or mountains cashed but especially for the meeting that it causes with the Berber population (Zayanis). This walk allows us to approach them and live in contact with them, our search for the discovery of Berber heritage also lead us to discover their natural environment: beautiful lakes and gorges twinned with a splendid view of the large cedar forests. A particularly attractive hike in flora and fauna, accessible to any hiker lovers of nature.
