Special Morocco M'Goun 2013 - 9 days - starting May 26
From May to October Maroc Travel takes you to the eastern High Atlas Mountains. We have a special Springtime/Early Summer group tour
9 days - starting on Saturday May 26 up to Sunday June 03
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.
After Jebel Toubkal (4.167m./13.671 ft) the summit of Irghil M’goun (4.068m./13.346 ft.) is the second highest in Morocco (and in the North of Africa). Every one with a good spirit & condition - who likes to walk - can make this. Just do it slowly, step by step. And …. if you feel the summit is too much you can stay 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. more information
And after the trekking you have time to visit all the magic’s of Marrakech. And of course, if you prefer, we can make you a tailor made program as well: it's the country of 1001 nights !
