What is my elevation

Morocco Elevation Map

Morocco's elevation map is diverse, with the country being home to various mountain ranges, including the Atlas Mountains in the central part of the country. These mountains divide the country into two distinct regions, with the northern part having a more coastal and fertile landscape, while the southern region is characterized by vast stretches of desert.


In addition to the Atlas Mountains, the country also has several plateaus and valleys that are elevated generally between 1,200 to 1,800 meters above sea level. The Rif Mountains in the north, parallel to the coast, have peaks that reach up to 2,000 meters. Overall, Morocco's mountainous terrain is rich in natural resources, including minerals that have been mined for centuries.


Morocco's varied topography means that the climate can vary from region to region. The coastal areas have a Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and mild winters, while the interior has a harsher continental climate with extreme temperature fluctuations. The southern part of the country is characterized by desert conditions, with little to no rainfall.

Despite the challenging terrain, Morocco's people have adapted to their surroundings and developed unique cultures and traditions that reflect the diversity and resilience of the country's landscapes.
