Taghia

During the age of Pericles, Carthaginian merchants trading gold on the other side of Gibraltar would tell this story: after crossing a desert miraculously dotted with wells and oases, populated only by roaming nomads and wild beasts, you will reach a fabulous mountain.
« The top, always above the clouds, remains invisible. The locals call it the « pillar of heaven » » – Herodote’s voyage, by Bernard Domenech.
Come discover the setting of this tale with Esprit Vertical, explore the Taghia area and its deep canyons.
Let us meet in the heart of the atlas, for an experience that is out of this world.

Sportive Canyon Trip– Full Day

A minimum of 3 days are required in order to descend the Akka’n Taghia. The canyon doesn’t present any particular difficulties –none of the jumps exceed 10m. The walk there is breathtaking, arguably more so than the canyon itself.
Cross bridges worthy of an Indiana Jones movie, dangling over 200m of thin air!

Expedition Canyon – 2 Days

The Akka’n Tafraout canyon is probably the deepest and narrowest of all Moroccan canyons. Just stretch out your arms and you will touch the walls of the canyon towering 700m above you… Finding it hard to picture? Then come check it out!
We will reach the start of the canyon after a day of trekking, starting in Taghia.
The path leads us along a frequently snowy pass, over 3600m high, our mules will be carrying our canyoning and camp gear.
We then descend to lower altitudes and join a small snaky river on the high plateaus: the Akka’n Tafraout.
Time to set up camp, relax and share a well deserved meal. Fall asleep to an unforgettable night under the starry sky, listening to Berber lullabies that echo through the mountains.
We wake at 7am, to set off on the amazing canyon descent, which will finally lead back to the small town of Taghia.
