Snow in Morocco – Marrakech Morocco, a tourist city known as the red city, has a series of historical and cultural treasures as well as offering a wide range of natural beauty that is very intriguing. No wonder if until now the city has become a byword among foreign tourists and a tourist center in Morocco.
Each year, the tourists who come to this city continue to rise and make the red city is increasingly popular. From this came a growing assumption among Moroccan society. “If you come to Morocco, then you have not said to have been the country Morocco if it has not set foot in the city of Marrakech,” said one of the locals.
Initially I believe less and less curious about the assumption. However, when winter comes I find the answers to think that lack of trust.
Well, generally known Moroccan arid and hot because it is situated in Africa, it appears that not only have the Saharan sand and majestic buildings and historic, but also have the dazzling sea of snow atop Oukaimeden or Atlas mountains.
The distance between the capital city of Marrakech Rabat is 400 miles or about 4 hours by road. To get to the destination still requires quite a long time, about an hour and a half away. Because of the road is a mountainous area either side there are ravines and meandering.
Along the way, we were spoiled by the snow grains stuck to the branches and twigs of trees. From behind the windshield mounds of snow that was on the roadside look hardened. The hills mountain air before evaporating heat is frozen with tightly closed by snow. The fresh air, soothing ambiance and our views. Occasionally saw trees that were in the right and left as the trees grow on cotton.
Likewise, when we got Oukaimeden. Snow looks almost covered housing in the area. Pencita passing the ski that continues to this mountainous area thronged looks so enthusiastic. Even some parents who spend their time playing the snow with her children.
To reach the top Oukaimeden, the Moroccan government has provided a means of transportation in the form of a cable car. With pay 25 dirhams, from the top you can see a vast expanse of snow. Atlas mountains as if it had been transformed into a sea of clean snow and crystallized. You will also be entertained with performances skiers who jumped from the top.
At the peak of the traveler Oukaimeden can ski as much, with rents 30 dirhams per person. For those who can not ski do not despair, because you can easily find the youth who are ready to teach you how to ski, of course, with reach into more money in your pocket.
For those of you who want to visit this place would that be done in late January or early February. However, due to changes in the weather in Morocco, apparently in early December is the peak Oukaimeden been filled with snow.
