Detail about the package
Ait Bougmez Valley trek
5-Day Aït bouguemez Valley Trek: The valley of Ait Bougmez is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful in Morocco, and it’s certainly one of our favourite places – anywhere in the world! It’s a fairytale landscape of farmers’ fields, characteristic adobe villages and has an other-worldliness that draws visitors in search of a mountain escape that combines beauty and rural culture. Tabant, the main village in the valley hosts an excellent Sunday market and the valley (known internationally as “the happy valley”) is the trailhead for an exciting hike up the country’s third highest peak, Jebel M’goun. Equally good as a region for easier grades of walking, given the valley’s wide, flat base, Bougmez is worth the extra effort to access as compared to regions closer to Marrakech
