George Heriots School Morocco Expedition 2015.

We have just finished an outdoor residential out on Mull so we are a little late with posting images from the recent High Atlas Trekking Expedition we guided for George Heriots School.

It was a tremendous trip to the Atlas Mountains with 16 pupils and 2 teachers trekking over 3650m passes and standing on the summit of Jebel Toubkal 4167m. It was a massive experience for all the 14 and 15 year old pupils and of course for us as guides too. It is a wonderful country and the rugged mountains offer so much scope and variation throughout the seasons.

The young team were brilliant to work with and the local Berbers were so generous and hospitable.

The weather was very kind to us. Beautiful conditions with little wind helped us all acclimatise and enjoy camping out at over 3000m and the vast summit vistas across the Sahara Desert.
