Special Morocco easy walking in the eastern High Atlas Mountains: M'Goun & La vallée des heureux
Mountains in Morocco? Yes, there are several mountain ranges. Just south of Marrakech. Maroc Travel takes you to the eastern High Atlas Mountains from May to October. We have a special 9 days grouptour starting Saturday May 26 upto Sunday June 03 to take you to the springtime & early summer in the mountains.
M'Goun & Aït Bougmez
In the eastern High Atlas you will find the green valley of the Aït Bougmez: ‘La Vallée des heureux’, the valley of the 'blessed'. Berber people live here in a remote and fruitful area with plenty of small water streams. Our walking tour is easy, 4 to 6 hours per day, with lots of variation. Only the day to Irghil M'Goun takes 8 hours. High summits of the Atlas Mountains are over 4.000m., the highest being Jebel Toubkal (4.167m./13.671 ft). Second highest is the summit of Irghil M’goun (4.068m./13.346 ft.). AND ... Every one with a good spirit & condition - who likes to walk - can make this. Just do it slowly, step by step. If you might feel the summit is too much you also can stay this day in the ‘bivaque’ high up in the mountains. At the plateau de Targdit you enjoy beautiful nature and Berber hospitality by sipping from your fresh made mint tea. The cook and the mule drivers stay in the ‘bivaque’ as well. During the trek we make ‘bivaques’ in the middle of nature, near a water source. Good to refresh your body and mind. We let you adapt to altitude as well. The trekking starts in the mountain village of Abachkou. From there you walk through colourful Berber valleys: green terraces with barley, houses in red clay, ancient walnut trees ... Trees providing more than fruit only: shadow in summer, sunshine in winter. Higher up in the mountains only shepherds and nomads with their goat and sheep.
Trekking in the Moroccan High Atlas Mountains is much more than just walk up the summit of Irghil M’Goun. We take the time to meet Berber culture, traditions and beautiful nature. After the trekking there is time to visit the magic’s of M'kech. And if you prefer we can make you a tailor made program* as well: it's the country of 1001 nights !
