Palmer paints a practical and pretty picture

I’m currently planning a winter summit of Jbel Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains and this book seemed to be the logical purchase.

I’ve pre booked the trip through a UK based tour operator who, to my surprise, I’ve come to realise is author of this very book!

I’ve read most of the parts of the book that are relevant to my trip and I’m very pleased with my purchase.

The book manages to relay basic information, as well as things that only the hardiest of trekkers might consider, without being condescending.

One of my favourite features of this book is that it is not just a factual travel book. Yes, it has plenty of facts and lots of useful information. But scattered throughout the pages, you’ll also find colourful journal entries from trips taken by the author himself in the Atlas region.

Some sections begin with relevant and interesting quotes from texts about Morocco and the Berber people. I find this to be a nice touch that helps fuel the sense of adventure in planning such a trip, and stops it from becoming merely an admin exercise.

I feel I would have enjoyed reading this book even without my impending trek and it has made me consider trips and treks in other parts of the Atlas Mountains.

It’s a nice sized book to chuck in a bag. I shall be bringing it with me on my trip to Toubkal.

Look no further, this is the book

I bought this for use during a week long trek in the Atlas mountains this summer. It was the best money I ever spent.


THE guide to trekking in Morocco – don’t leave home without it!
