Village of High Atlas

Ait Lekah, Morocco

A´t Lekak is the largest settlement on the climb to Ouka´meden, lying just underneath the gorges that lead into the valley of Moroccan skiing. A´t Lekah is a small farmer's village, living off red soil, green grass, and very moderate expectations to wealth.
A walk will not take more than 10 minutes, but the charming kids that follow you whereever you go, will try to convince you to stay longer.

Except for the tiny food store there are no tourist amenities in the village. For any form of service, Ouka´meden or Marrakech. Hitching out of town should however be quite possible.
