MGOUN MASSIF

Reaching 4,068 metres, the Mgoun Massif is Morocco's second highest peak and a trekker's mecca.

Mgoun Massif - Second Peak of the High Atlas


Reaching 4,068 metres, the Mgoun summit is second in height only to Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. The remote and beautiful Ait Bougmez Valley provides relatively easy access and gives hill walkers and ramblers a long but easy hike past spectacular gorges, isolated Berber villages and mountain streams.

Being the second summit of the Kingdom, the Mgoun Massif is located in the High Atlas at approximately 250 km from Marrakech in the province of Azilal, east of Jebel Toubkal. The Mgoun Massif relief is formed by massive mountains bordered by high cliffs, and aired by broad valleys which are thoroughly cultivated.

The region around Mgoun Massif has many attractions including the Ait Bougmez Valley, Col Oghri mountain (3,200 metres), Tighremt Valley, Ait Boulli village, Oulillimt gorges, Imghrane village, Tessaout and El Kelaa Mgouna.

Travellers to the Mgoun Massif can enjoy wilderness camping and magnificent views; explore nearby oases and Kasbahs, trek and ski in the mountains. The ultimate challenge, however, is an ascent of the massif itself on a one week trekking circuit.
