A fully supported twelve thousand feet hike to the highest peak in north Africa! Hike in style with We take you to the third highest peak of the Atlas Mountains : the M’Goun Mount, at 4071m of altitude. A unique adventure with its long ridge overlooking the High Atlas. Get ready to discover breathtaking landscapes and to meet local people, in a part of the Atlas Mountains still unknown by the tourists.

The first day, we drive you to the green valley of Ait Bougmez where you can admire the ridges that stand before you like pyramids. After a few hours walking you will arrive at the sheepfolds of Azib N’Ikkis, where you will spend your first night under the tent.

The second day is dedicated to the crossing of two mountain passes that will offer you a breathtaking view of the ridges of Tarkeddite and the majestic M’Goun mountain range. You will spend the night in a tent on the plateau of Tarkeddite, where you may have the chance to meet the nomads who often come here with their flocks (goats, sheep and even camels!).

The third day is probably the hardest beacause here starts the climb of Mount M’Goun until 4071m! But the effort is worth it from the top you can see the fabulous Dades and Drâa valleys, and even the black peaks of Jbel Saghro (if the weather is clear). On the fourth day you will enjoy a last panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and the “Happy Valley” of Ait Bougmez, before going down quietly to the starting point.

This adventure is intended for experienced walkers or people in good physical condition. However, it is possible to hike without climbing the M’Goun Pass, so less athletic people can also join the group. A mule driver follows you throughout the trek while a cooker takes care of the setting up of the camps and the preparation of all the meals, which are varied and hot served.
