Mount Zalagh - overlooking and overlooked?

Jebel (Mount) Zalagh is the mountain that looks down on Fez. If you are a regular visitor to Fez, or if you live here, you will be aware of the mountain. But few visitors or locals, make the effort to do an excursion to the top. The mountain not only provides spectacular views night and day and is also a cool escape from the heat during the summer months. It is a superb location for a picnic.

The view at night is stunning (photo; Sandy McCutcheon)
For the more adventurous it is also a fantastic place for mountain biking (see our story here - cycling in Fez).

To give you a sense of the views, here are some photographs by our colleague Gérard Chemit.
