Type of Trip
Mgoun is one of the best choices for the practice of summer trekking outside The European Alps. And that’s why today I have an excellent invitation for you…
Mgoun is not only an extraordinary destination for hiking, but it is also an unique opportunity to find the mysteries of a different culture, a non occidental food and a landscape that mixes aridity with green oasis. All this and much more can be found in the marvelous mountain range of High Atlas, in Morocco.
The hiking trails of Mgoun and Mount Toubkal are suitable for all levels and technical skills. It consists in a 6-day guided tour that includes the following features:
- Local cooks that will make you taste very exotic flavors
- Mountain huts and rural houses
- The help of mules
- A complete mountain guide service
- All transfers from and to Marrakech
During these 6 days we will have a prudent time to acclimate our bodies and make this adventure nicer. Then, I’ll give you the details of an estimate itinerary. Remember I can plan a personalized trip according to your own wishes:
A taxi will take us from Marrakech to Agouti. We will walk for 2 hours up to Azib Ikkis. Spend the night in a rural house.
Day of intensive hike (6 to 7 hours) until we get to Tarkeddit hut.
This day will be dedicated to acclimatization and rest. We can visit Tizi Iquadol Pass at 3.640 meters or Wandras gorge.
It will be a very important day because we will ascent for about 8 – 10 hours to the Mgoun Summit at 4.068 meters of height.
Walk from the Tarkeddit hut to Agouti during 8 or 9 hours.
Last day. A 5-hour drive again towards Marrakech.

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
About the Guide
I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC) and I'm a keen summer and winter climber. Originally from California, I lived in Morocco for ten years, most recently in the High Atlas mountain village of Imlil, and I'm currently based in the UK. I come alive in the mountains and love my role as a climbing and mountaineering instructor and seeing people equipped for their own adventures.
