introduction

Hover Box Element

Living in the Toubkal National Park, the indigenous Berber people have been there for
centuries. They predate the arrival of the Arabs and Islam and the title ‘Berber’ is
interchangeable with ‘Amazigh’. There are many Amazigh tribes throughout the High
Atlas.The Berber diet has developed along with them and their culture high in the passes
and plateaux of their home land. Their cuisine is extremely healthy (some Berbers live well
into their 90’s) and features many different breads, soups and dishes that include barley
and couscous. Some say that you can only get Berber food in Berber villages – that it is
impossible to make anywhere else.
The typical Berber home is made from pise, a combination of stone and mud, that has
served them and their mountain lives well over the centuries. The Berbers often have large
families in their dwelling places.The Berber’s have many festivals and know how to have a
good time. For example, if you are lucky enough to be there at the same time as a wedding
is taking place, it is not unheard of for the celebrations to last for 7 days and invitations to
be extended to villagers from miles around.There are many colonial influences in Berber
culture, particularly in their language. You can find French, Spanish and English words in
every day usage. For example, pise, written above, is of French origin. On your adventure,
you may well find French spellings and pronunciations of various words used often.All treks
