2nd edition, featuring a comprehensive trail guide and maps, practical information, historical and cultural background, and more.

Alan Palmer first visited Morocco over 35 years ago and began trekking in the Atlas Mountains in the mid-1980s. His hiking adventures began serendipitously when he jumped aboard a shared taxi outside Bab er Robb, bound for the trailhead town of Asni, simply to escape the August heat of Marrakech. Once there he decided to climb Mt Toubkal, at 13,670 ft the highest mountain in North Africa, and made it to the top wearing nothing on his feet but a pair of flimsy lounge shoes. Since then he has travelled widely in Europe and Asia, often combining his trips with work as an archaeologist. He has trekked through some of the most spectacular mountainous regions of the Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush, and has contributed to two other guidebooks, Pakistan and The Silk Road, both by Insight Guides. Alan returns to Morocco as often as possible where he has recently been exploring new routes for inclusion in this book. In 2012 he founded Trek in Morocco, a company which specialises in organising fully personalized, tailor-made treks and tours throughout Morocco, for individuals and groups.
