The group of the 7 Summits Club "Energia" spent the final day of the trip on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Morocco:

Well, that's it! No matter how much the string does not curl, it still ends sooner or later.  So our Moroccan adventures are coming to an end. There's a flight tomorrow. But, today everything is still going on and we are in Es Suaire - the city of artists, hippies and people with taste! The power of the Atlantic is felt - stormy and strong wind (laying is useless). This time we are not in a hurry - we breathe, look, remember. Someone meets the sunset at the fort, the strong half experienced the local hamam and Berber massage (well, at least to wash at the same time after the mountains and the desert), did not rush to buy souvenirs and argan oil, tasted all kinds of local fish and seafood.

Argan grows and bears fruit only in Morocco. Only in the area of Es Sueira, thanks to the cold Canary current and a certain microclimate, argan nuts ripen. Tomorrow there is a jog in the plan, seeing off Andrey, who leaves a day later and the airport. Everything has its ending!

Your Anastasia Kuznetsova and the Energy group.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Morocco:

  Warm greetings from North Africa, from the edge of the desert! We met the dawn in the desert on the top of a dune, not being afraid of the beginning of a sandstorm. Part of the team took a jeep safari through the dunes, the other meditated among the endless smooth lines of the incessant dunes riding camels. In the desert comes peace and tranquility, sooner or later, one way or another. The equator of our journey has passed and now we are heading back to Marrakech. We had lunch in one of the casbahs converted into a restaurant and a guest house.

 In the evening, at sunset, we walked along the ancient streets of the Kasbah Ain Ben Haddu, the largest and oldest in the region, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summit! The group of the 7 Summits Club "Energia" made a successful ascent o Mount Tubkal

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Morocco:

Today is an important day! The day of the assault on the summit of Jebel Tubkal (4167 m), the highest in North Africa. Oddly enough, Moroccans do not consider themselves Africans and mention in conversation that they have never been to Africa.  But, I got a little distracted. Jebel in Arabic means mountain, and not part of the name, as some people think. So the Energy group stood today at the top of this jebel in full force, which everyone was incredibly happy about. All the guys - with the top!!!

On the descent, between conversations, it turned out that in the valley leading to the shelter, halfway, there is a holy place where the trial of the king of genies was once held. People come here from all over North Africa (and even Celine Dion came in the old days) to pray and ask for something important. Women usually ask for a husband or children here, men for healing.

And the Energy group is now resting in an atmospheric mountain loggia overlooking the valley and gaining strength before further adventures!

Greetings to all from Morocco, guide Anastasia Kuznetsova.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Anastasia Kuznetsova reports from Morocco:

May 2. Beginning. Warm greetings from Africa to all!  Today, the sun over terracotta Marrakech was especially expressive. Everything was being prepared for the arrival of the 7 Summits Club group in Morocco to reveal their secrets and introduce them to the most incredible North African country, where everything is "wrapped up and mixed up" and everyone gets along well with each other.

Without delay, immediately after arrival, we did not dive, but plunged headlong into the atmosphere of the Middle Ages.  We walked through the streets of the medina, which has not changed for centuries. We walked to the hotel, but did not get there, because it is simply impossible to get by transport through the incredible maze of streets.

Then, as expected, an info briefing and equipment check. Then lunch in a traditional restaurant with a view of the ruined walls of the royal palace, where storks are now nesting. Then fresh fruit tasting at the most famous square in Africa - Gemma el Fna and preparation for tomorrow's trip to the mountains.

High Atlas is waiting for us! And its blue ridges in the misty haze are already visible from the roof of the riad and beckon.
