Our trek route will lead you to the top of the M’goun, Morocco’s 3rd highest summit. During an amazing trek in the heart of the Central High Atlas Mountains, you will discover the famous Bouguemez Valley ( Happy Valley) and a less visited trekking area!
The M’Goun summit is a popular destination for hikers and trekkers who would like to test their skills before tackling bigger adventures.
For Trekking Atlas Mountains you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.
Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days. On mule treks you usually have the choice of staying in Berber Guesthouse/with families or wild camping in 2-person tents. In addition to regular packing, here is a Check List for Atlas Trekking:
