Description

Once the winter blanket of snow has gone the High Atlas which includes Mt Toubkal and Mgoun, becomes one of the premier summer trekking destinations outside of the European Alps. If you are looking to experience a non-western culture and cuisine, a beautiful arid landscape with the green oases that fill in the valleys then the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco are yours for the trekking!

I offer a variety of trekking options around the Toubkal and Mgoun  mountain range. My treks include:

  • A good mix of Moroccan and more western cuisine from our local cooks.
    Clean and comfortable accommodation in the mountains (gites and refuges).
  • Mule support to carry the heavier bags for the journey.
    A fully qualified guide (International Mountain Leader or Summer Mountain Leader).
  • Transport to and from Marrakech

What about the programme? Well that depends on you! There are spectacular treks in Mgoun massif, so my general itinerary there would include three days trekking in at least two of the beautiful valley systems.

If summiting Mgoun was part of the trip then I recommend a minimum three days to allow a good amount of time to acclimatise and enjoy the mountains.

I’m also happy to offer summer ascents of Mt Toubkal.

Here is a sample trekking itinerary in the Mgoun mountain range :

Day 1

Travel from Marrakech to Agouti (1,815m) via taxi (5 hours), walk two hours to Azib Ikkis and stay at the gite.

Day 2

Walk into Tarkeddit refuge (2,900m): 6 to 7 hours.

Day 3

Rest and acclimatisation day. A day to go for a wander up to the Tizi Iquadol col (3,640m) or over to the Wandras gorge.

Day 4

Ascent of Mgoun (4068m): 8 to 10 hours.

Day 5

Walk out from Tarkeddit refuge to Agouti: 8 to 9 hours.

Day 6

Travel back to Marrakech via taxi (5 hours).
