Marrakech - Ait Bougamez. An early morning departure takes you off into the High Atlas along the route for Fes. After a short drive we turn off south and arrive at the glorious waterfall of the Cascades D‘Ouzoud for lunch.
After taking some time to rest and enjoy our magnificent surroundings its time to hit the twisty mountain road past Azilal and reach the heart of the High Atlas – the valley
of Ait Bougamez.
Ait Bougemez is a hidden gem, a valley close to Ighil Mgoun, the highest summit in Morocco apart from the
Toubkal range. The area is popular for trekking, as there is a long, easy trek from the Tessaout Sources/ Tarkeddid plateau, which is reached from the Ait Bougmez valley. Exploring the valley is easily done on foot and it can be preferable to driving, as so many
places still have poor roads. The centre of the region is the village of Tabant, and from here, in less than an hours walk, several small
villages can be explored - Imelghas, Iskatafene, Ikhf-n-Ighir, Agouti, Ait Imi Iqballioun, Ifrane, and Arous. Three hours walk away is the village of Taghoulit. With incredibly striking scenery and off the beaten track location, Ait Bougmez is still unspoilt. Here you’ll spend the next three nights in a Kasbah, exploring the beautiful surrounding area.
