Mount Mgoun summit trek: The M’Goun valley is located in the central part of the High Atlas Mountains. From an administrative point of view belongs to the province of Ouarzazate. The M’Goun summit is a popular destination for hikers trekking practicing even if you don’t enjoy the same prestige as the Toubkal. Accidents during M’Goun ascent are rare in view of the relatively low altitude of this mountain and the lack of glacier. An unforgettable trek to mount M’goun for Lovers of the great outdoors, spectacular scenery and unforgettable meetings, this trip is yours! We will be conducted east of Marrakech, in the heart of the Moroccan High Atlas. Throughout our journey, the high altitude, plateaus, canyons, valleys and rivers provide spectacular dimension to your trip. Then we will visit the “Happy Valley” of Bougmez, an oasis of greenery, before finishing with the visit of Marrakech and its many treasures.
