Haut Atlas National Park

The park covers a total area of 1200km² and its located in the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains and its characterised by the unique terrains. The park was established to preserve cultural values along with its populations of Barbary sheep, Cuvier’s Gazelle and the most important park’s vegetations and amphibians.

The park is considered to be unique because of its three regions with one being the plateaus and lakes of Isli and Tislite, the mountains that cover the middle of the park and lastly the eastern edge where Jebel Aberdouz sits. This has made the park to keep most of its wildlife due to the harsh terrain around the park area.  More interesting about the park is that, its western side near the lakes is the site of a yearly, unique festival in the village of Imilchil; all this should be visited while at the park.

What to See and Do

Many rare animals such as sheep, gazelle, Barbary macaques, boar, raptors, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. This park gives visitors chances of hiding out from the crowed as they can enjoy the nature with minimum interventions from the rest since few people visit it at a time. The park can be enjoyed with a guide or without a guide by following the park map but for more better experience, hiring a guide who is an expert with the park flora and faunas is ideal. Take a visit a hike of a day trip to the twin lakes of Isli and Tislite.
