Ascent of Mount Mgoun

Ascent of Mount Mgoun. 6 Days hiking

Our route takes us to the Arous sources and plateau of Tarkeddit, as we enter through the top of the circus Tiwawakyhe (3400 m). From this point, the vast north Slope of Mgoun unfolds.
The Ascent of the "4000 m" still opens new horizons to the whole of the Atlas Mountains, and south to the Jebel Saghro and extended Sahara. Gradually, we are going through the south side of the central High Atlas, Ameskar, In the middle of tamarisk and oleanders, and small villages. On our return to Marrakech, we pass by the dades valley, the road of the thousand Kasbahs and beautiful palm groves.

Particular strengths:

A route through varied landscapes | The ascent of Mgoun (4071 m) | Return by the Dades Valley and the road of a thousand kasbahs | The architecture of southern Morocco.
