    Barbary Ape near Azrou

    The cedar forests south of Azrou are supposedly great for hiking and if you're lucky you'll come across some of its best know residents, the Barbery Apes. As we were leaving Azrou on the road to Midelt we spotted a few of these apes close to the road - some of them were even walking across it!

    View from the hill

    Azrou is surrounded by hills and many people hike up these hills for great views of the town and the surrounding area. On our first evening we walked through the market and over to one of these hills beyond rue Titahcen.

    This is one of the poorer areas of town and the higher we climbed the more obvious the poverty. Many of the houses here were dilapidated and rundown. The people were very friendly though and kept saying bonjour to us. Once we had cleared the houses the trail became much steeper. We stopped at the tree line to take pictures as the views of Azrou and the surrounding region were excellent. It was a long way to the top and as it was getting late we decided to go no further.

    Azrou is the Berber word for rock and town takes its name from the huge rock mountain near the centre of town. The area around this azrou is a popular spot with local kids while you can also climb to the top of the azrou from where there are great views over the town. It's an easy enough climb though near the top there are a few dangerous spots which stopped us going right to the top. The summit is marked by a large crown.
