Cedre Gouraud, Azrou

#2 of 6 in Things to do in Azrou
Outdoor Activity
See the skeleton of the iconic Cedre Gouraud, once the largest cedar in the country named after the French general Henri Gouraud. The grey sign-posted trunk of the dead tree towers nearly 42 m (138 ft) above the surrounding area, cleared from other vegetation to make room for tourist shops. The tree died in 2003 at the estimated age of more than 800 years old. If you're prepared with comfortable shoes, snacks, and water, hike through the cedar forest. Keep an eye out, though, for cheeky Barbary macaques that might snatch a cell phone from your hands for sheer amusement.

You can see, play with, and feed funny monkeys with peanuts being sold there(5dh), ride horses (20 dh), buy souvenirs made of cedar trees (from 5 to 40 dh), and take photos there with the most ancient, collosal tree in North Africa called Goraud Cedar tree (a tree being discovered by French general Gouraud who lost his arm in war and resembles the tree with one arm). Amazing views.
