M'goun Trekking: 5 nights/6 days


The Mgoun Massif forms the most southerly of the three ridges, which make up the High Atlas. Our trek is a high circuit in the Central Atlas and starts in the beautiful valley of the Ait Bougemez. Not only do we enjoy the majestic scenery of these rugged mountains, but also the friendly and fascinating culture of the indigenous Berbers. It is a wild area, which in comparison with the Jebel Toubkal region, sees very few groups and subsequently has a more simplistic tourist infrastructure. In many ways however the scenery is more magnificent with extensive terracing, green broad valleys pierced with irrigation canals, areas of walnut copses, strange rock formations and colours, with the villages clinging to the mountainsides. Above all this soars the peak of Mgoun at just over 4000 metres, only slightly less than Toubkal itself. All in all it is perhaps a more interesting mountain, because instead of endless scree fields, the 'Alpine start' takes you up to a high roller coaster ridge, along above and past a huge cirque (corrie) to the summit. We have watched Lammergeiers land on this high point in previous years!
