Atlas Mountains and Morocco.
The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range in the Maghreb. It stretches around 2,500 km (1,600 mi) through Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. The range's highest peak is Jebel Toubkal, with an elevation of 4,167 metres (13,671 ft) in southwestern Morocco. It separates the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert. The Atlas mountains are primarily inhabited by Berber populations. The terms for 'mountain' in some Berber languages are adrar and adras, which are believed to be cognates of the toponym Atlas.
