Itinerary of Mgoun Sahara combined trip.

Day 1:  Marrakech –  Ouzoud waterfalls –  Ait Bougamaz valley 1800m

After breakfast, We start our journey to Ait Bougmez happy valley in the central High Atlas mountains. We will visit and take a great hike around the highest waterfalls of Morocco, Ouzoud. We will have Lunch by the falls; then we will carry on towards the valley, where we will stay for the night in a lovely local Guesthouse. 5 hour’s drive.

Day 2: 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 grandiose setting, where we will set up our base camp. 7 hours of walking.

Day 3: 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 a contrast of 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 4: 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)

The estimated duration of the walk is 6 hours.
