Morocco is one of the world’s fastest growing travel destinations, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, and for good reason. This North African country around the same size as California boasts astounding diversity: epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, expansive desert, Roman ruins, and stunning coastlines along both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.

Members of our Your Shot photography community made the pictures in this gallery, which transports us from the busy streets of Marrakech to the rolling dunes of the Sahara and to the peaks of the High Atlas mountains—and beyond.
