8-Day Trekking to Sirwa Mountain


Located south of the Toubkal massif, Jbel Siroua (3305 m) is an ancient volcanic mountain range, where kasbahs and earthen villages are scattered, along with their collective fortified granaries called igoudar, symbols of a strong tradition. At the foot of these villages, in the fields irrigated by streams, barley, wheat, saffron, and almond trees thrive. Women weave beautiful carpets and sell them at the Taznaght market. Sheep farming is another important resource for the local population. Numerous sheepfolds called azib punctuate the vast spaces of the mountain. They are occupied by the Berbers part of the year, as the herds graze in the high-altitude pastures in spring and summer. Sirwa is visible from the summit of Toubkal and is considered a “natural water castle” due to the snow accumulation from December to March. It is an ideal region for hiking through fantastic landscapes, where the clear world of the desert contrasts with the deep shaded valleys.
