Trekking in Sirwa Mountains has been popular for years, as it offers both a physical challenge and great nature, but can easily be done without local guides. There are plenty of elements in nature that easily will help you navigate around the area.
The nature here is absolutely on the extreme side, as so much else in the Anti Atlas. Most of it is barren, the mountains are often totally different from anything else you have seen before, and the villages have often been formed in close cooperation with nature.
The goal of trekking here, and for once there is really just one itinerary, is the Jebel Sirwa at 3,305 metres above sea level. The Jebel Sirwa is an isolated volcanic peak, which is quite possible to climb for even inexperienced mountaineers.
