Itinerary of Mgoun traverse

Day 1: Arrival

Arrive in Marrakech.

Day 2: Marrakech – Tabant (1800m)

After an early breakfast, we set off to the Valley of Ait Bougmez, a five-hour journey. We meet our mule team at the Valley and spend the night in the local Guesthouse at Timit Village. There will be a picnic in Azilal—a 5-hour drive.

Day 3: Timit (1800m) – Bouberden Pass (3100m) – IGli N’Tanwout Plateau (2700m)

In the morning, we begin our first ascent. We will cross a forest of junipers and follow a mule trail to the Bouberden pass. From the pass, we will be rewarded with a view of the chain of M’goun, Wawgoulzat, Azourki, Tizal and Valley. We will have lunch at the pass, then descend towards the N’Tanwout plateau. This place offers a pastoral and splendid setting, where we will set up our base camp. 7 hours of walking.

Day 4: IGli N’Tawoute – Oulilimt valley – Aflafal source (2200 m)

We leave our superb bivouac and descend towards Ifri where the needles rise towards the sky with contrasting colors. By taking a winding path through the mountain of tufts of grass, we will reach Tizi N’Ifri pass which will take us into the Oulilimt valley. It is a grazing area where nomads bring herds from May to the end of September before the snows push them towards the south and the Saghro. Then, we will join our camp near the famous Aflafal, a natural cirque of extraordinary beauty where our bivouac will be. The afternoon will be devoted to relaxation. We will spend the night in tents. 6 hours trek

Day 5: Aflafal spring – Tighremt N’Ait Hamed – Ouzighimt valley – Imin Irkt (2000m)

This day is limited to the descent of the Ouzighimt; a wonderful valley whose population, especially women, are always in full activity: working in the fields, and collecting wood for the fire. Our walk will take place all along the road which connects several villages. Lunch will be at the edge of the river at Taghraft village. Then we continue our crossing towards the village Imin Irkt. Duration 6h of walking. Elevation: 500m descent. Overnight in tents.

Day 5: Imin Irkt (2000m) – Mgoun Gorges – Aguerzaga (1700m)

After breakfast, we leave very early in the morning for the narrow Mgoun Gorges. We walk in water through towering narrow canyons. There is an alternative route; we could take the Tizi n’ Ait Hamed pass if the water is too much. A lunch spot will be at the exit of the Gorges—overnight camping in tents near Aguerzaka. The estimated duration of the walk is 6 hours.

Day 7: Aguerzegua – Kelaa Mgouna – Ouarzazate – Tichka pass – Marrakech

We will make a short journey by local transport of approximately 9 km to reach the asphalt road where our vehicle will wait for the transfer to Marrakech. Along the way, we will stop in the town of M’Gouna, world-famous for its roses, which hosts a big festival dedicated to roses every week in May. At the end of the day, we will arrive in Marrakech, marking the end of our services. The journey will take approximately 6 hours. You spend the night in the hotel—end of Mgoun traverse.
