Azzaden Trekking Lodge
Azzaden Trekking Lodge, Atlas Mountains, Morocco
Azzaden Trekking Lodge, built by the Kasbah du Toubkal, is the start of a new concept in trekking in the High Atlas. The lodge allows guests to stay in the heart of the Atlas Mountains without having to compromise on accommodation, which was previously limited to camping or staying in a local house. Located in the hamlet of Id Issa in the remote valley of Azzaden, the lodge is a full-day trek from the Kasbah du Toubkal.
The architectural style of the lodge complements that of the surrounding villages, with many of the local villagers involved in the construction. The four en suite rooms have traditional wooden ceilings, wooden carved doors and fossil marble in the bathrooms. Equipped with solar-powered underfloor heating, the lodge also has a salon with a wood-burning stove and picture windows leading out onto a terrace with views of the valley below and the snow-capped peaks of Jebel Toubkal.
In keeping with the Kasbah du Toubkal's sustainable tourism policy, a Village Association has been formed in the Azzaden Valley to carry out community projects in the area, and 5% of proceeds are transferred to the association.
