What is the climate like in the Atlas mountains?

paulinari :
"nice, there is snow in winter, but in the spring and summer is very pleasant to go there to chill a little!"
kalizzi :
"In the high Atlas mountains the weather and climate are much influenced by height. The Atlas mountains here are at their grandest with the highest point (Mount Topkal, nr. Marrakesh) rising to 4,165 m/13,660 ft. Winter snowfall can be heavy and the highest areas are snow-covered well into the summer. The nearest location to the Atlas mountains is Marrakesh, whose weather is available under this link: If you are going north, then knowing the weather of this city is also useful (Taza) The climate paragraph of this page may also help: Hope this helps, and good luck."
Yassinou :
"cool weather, I mean rather very cold in Winter and fresh in summer. You mean the High Atlas (near Marrakech, cold) or the Middle Atlas (near Azrou, cold) or anti-Atlas in Agadir (warm)."
richie1383 :

We are looking to go to Marrakech which we already have a Riad, but then going to stay in the Atlas Mountains for one night, perhaps incorperating a Camel/Horse ride. Are there any places for this?

essayedfr :
"Search the web for "Ourika valley". I liked Le Maquis, see the hotel search linked below."
rosie :
"I agree Ourika is amazing!!! We visit Morocco every year and Marrakech is my favourite but even more so because Ourika is not far from Marrakech. Enjoy!"

"if you want to spoil yourselves check out the Kasbah toubkal very very nice!"

Atlantis means child of Atlas. While writing the names of parents of Cleito in Critias text, the male and female names got confused. Evenor is cognate with Mena, mother of Durga. An extra R was added to make it a male name. The consonant form of Leucippe LCPP. On re-arranging, it becomes CPPL which is cognate with Himavan, father of Druga. The Libyans confuse between the consonants 'r' and 'l'. In European languages, the articulation of 'l' and 'r' is indicated by their historical alteration, as in Sarah-Sally, and Katherine-Kathleen, and in the words like 'L. stella' cognate with 'star'. The name Cleito is the reverse cognate of the name Durga. The name Poseidon is cognate with Pasupati, another name of Lord Siva, husband of goddess Durga. "Evenor, and he had a wife named Leucippe, and they had an only daughter who was called Cleito." Durga was the only daughter of Himavan and Mena. "The maiden had already reached womanhood, when her father and mother died." Indians have a strange tradition. When a girl reaches the age of puberty, her parents are said to experience a strange death syndrome until they perform her marriage. This tradition was mis-understood in the Critias text. "Poseidon fell in love with her". According to Hindu myth, Lod Siva was doing penance on the Himalayas, to expiate the sin of cutting one head of Brahma. Young girl Durga happened to see him, and helped him in his penance. Lord Siva was pleased with her services and fell in love with her. "so that no man could get to the island" Durga means 'the inaccessible'. It is known that the most inaccessible mountains of the world are Himalayas. "bringing up two springs of water from beneath the earth, one of warm water and the other of cold, and making every variety of food to spring up abundantly from the soil." These 'two springs' born in Himalayas are the two most sacred rivers of India, Ganga and Yamuna. They are known to be the most fertile rivers in the world. The flow rate of Ganga in ancient times exceeded any other river on earth. Ganga is said to be white in colour and Yamuna is black. Yamuna is another name of goddess Durga. Kali, another name of goddess Durga, means 'black'. Kali is said to be the 'hot' killer goddess and Ganga is said to be the 'cool' life extender. Modern medicine says that women extend the life span of men. Ancient Indian medicine and Tantra know that a few women reduce the life of span of men. Such women posses a small amount of the primordial Durga energy, Adi Sakti. Tantra says that by worshiping such a woman through rituals, a man can 'kill' the 'dark' Karma of his many past lives and receive enlightenment. Manu was a title accorded the progenitor of humankind. A human is called 'Manus' because he originated from Manu. The word Sanskrit word Manus was the root for Greek Humanus - they added an extra H to suit their speech habit. The ten sons of Manu was stated as ten sons of Poseidon in Critias text. "the eldest, who was the first king, he named Atlas" Atals was the bearer of the sky in other Greek myths. The tallest mountains of the world are Himalayas, whose former name was Dhavala (white) mountains. In local tongues, they are called Dhoul - the name is cognate with Atlas. The 'five twin children' in Critias text is a mis-interpretation of the description of five continents in ancient Hindu texts. "Now Atlas had a numerous and honourable family, and they retained the kingdom, the eldest son handing it on to his eldest for many generations" (Critias). Only India has the oldest tradition of handing the kingship to his eldest for innumerable generations. India has Kumari Kandam legend which is similar to Atlantis legend. India has the oldest planned cities with high technology infrastructures for water supply and sewerage. Links:.?qid=20070403172847AAR4ynu No native tribe of North Africa calls the northern mountains by name Atlas mountais. The name Aures mountains is popular among them. Despite extensive efforts and innumerable theories, finding Atlantis has proven difficult. Over the years, theorists have variously proposed that the origins of the Atlantis story lie in most of the continents and oceans of the world, including apparently unlikely spots, such as Antarctica and "Sri Lanka". Most of them are looked for proofs of flood. Very few bothered about cultural links and their connection with ancient India. The other Sanskrit name for Himalayas was Dhavala (white) mountains. This became Dhaoul mountains in the local tonges. The name Atlas is cognate with Dhoul. An Atlantis in the Indian Ocean: Koenraad Elst>

Stand in Marrakech and you can see the Atlas Mountains looming in the background. So why is it that Morocco is associated with souks and sand, but not snow? Ok, so it’s not Aspen, but the ski resort at Oukaimeden is easily accessible, functional, and, most importantly, cheap.

Marrakesh the land of the red ochre, since most of the buildings are covered with it and then you have the snow clad Atlas mountains for contrast. I have to say that when I travelled to Marrakesh I cam here with certain preconceptions about this palace and the Moroccan culture. I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised with the way my en

beneath the high mountain range of the African Atlas is the red city of Morocco known as Marrakech. With a culture that has grown to be so vibrant, free, and pure, who would have known that this imperial city only started as another pit stop for medieval caravans? However, regardless of its humble beginnings, you’ll still be bound by its magic spel
