Jbel Ayachi

Wadi in Ayachimassiv

The Jebel Ayachi (Arabic جبل العياشي ) is a 3747 m high mountain - but Ayachi also referred to the entire mountain range of 20 kilometers in diameter - in the western High Atlas in the middle of Morocco. It is located east of the city Midelt in the region Meknès- Tafilalet.

The mountain is located in the transition zone of the Palaearctic and Ecosystems sub. While the north is forested, the southern flanks are characterized by arid climate. Biodiversity is high. However, there is damage caused by extensive grazing by sheep and goats still partially nomadic Berber shepherds.

Snow is despite the proximity of the desert to June. For relatively simple climb needed two days a bivouac is located at 2200 m.
