Jbel Aklim (2,531 meters)
Journey from Agadir: 4 hours
The summit of Jbel Aklim (30.123581, -8.284200) rises to 2,531 meters. It is one of the highest peaks in the Anti-Atlas. From the top, you can admire the High Atlas and the Jebel Siroua. To the north, the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas immediately catch your eye.
The land around Jbel Aklim is rocky but there are patches of greenery around the small villages and their water sources.
