Mt M'Goun trek - second highest mountain in Morocco

mt m'goun trek

The Mt M'Goun trek consists of 5 days trekking in the Ait Bougamez and M'Goun valleys in Morocco . Ait Bougamez is fondly known as 'happy valley' as all the inhabitants are always happy and smiling. During this trek you will journey through wide valleys and over steep passes to be rewarded by exceptional Moroccan panoramas. We will take a circular route and our accommodation will be a mixture of gites and camping. On your return to Marrakech there will be the opportunity to explore De Jemma El Fna and its souks, food markets and historic palaces.
