Cedre Gouraud, Azrou

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Azrou
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.

  • The cedar is uninteresting, it is dead and frankly not worth the detour, on the other hand the forest that surrounds it is full of Monkeys (non-captive) accustomed to tourists and therefore very sociable. You can feed them fruit and water to drink, they love !!! Watch out for long dresses they cling to.

  • The truth is that I was quite disappointed by how little people care for the environment and the monkeys, a lot of plastics everywhere and a lot of people feeding the monkeys the leftovers of food.. Monkeys shouldn't eat fried potatoes, or pieces of bread, meat. People brought bags of food for monkeys and that doesn't do them any good, I think it should be forbidden. are obese, and these foods are not part of their diet.
