Morocco as described by many people, a cold country with a hot sun!!you can travel in one day from a hot temperature to the cold one then to the hot one once again just as you get the desert .Its has as well the widest range of climates of all North African countries .It has different kinds of Mountains , the Rif , the high ,the middle and the Anti Atlas mountains. This ranges shield the temperate and rainy Alantic coastal region of the country from the desert conditions of the Sahara to the east and south. The pre-saharian and the saharian south is a stony and sandy desert at the same time Morocco also has a strikingly varied landscape .Many different types of local climate have produced such contrasting scenery as mountain valleys carpted with flowers, the sun-scorched dunes of the Sahara, moist cedar forests and wadis swollen with spring rains.
