Climbing mount Mgoun Morocco

Hiking in High Atlas - M'goun Summit 4071m

We invite you to discover the region of m'goun massif nestled in the heart of the Atlas mountains, where the Berber traditional life is still untouched despite the arrival of electricity and the tarred road. The houses are assembled around the “Tighremt” and form hamlets nestled on arid slopes.
We offer a program adapted to your physical conditions to reach M'goun summit and have excellent memories of your trip.
