TREKKING DAY 1 : MARRAKECH / KASBAH AIT YOUL DADES : MARRAKECH – TICHKA PASS - OUARZAZATE – DADES VALLEY

Chegaga Aventure organises private mountain trekking tour in Morocco. Departure at 8h30 heading towards the Tichka pass, 2260m, the highest road-pass in Morocco, a grandiose panoramic scenery, not for the weak hearted. Along the road, many Berber villages perched in the mountains in the middle of forests and rose bushes. After the pass, the landscape becomes more and more arid and dry. We stop in Ouarzazate for lunch then continue to Skoura and its wonderful palmeraie before reaching Kalâat Mgouna, a fortress in the M’Goun mountainous chain. After This town, we head towards the Dades gorges and its various beautiful kasbahs. In the evening we reach the Kasbah of Ait Youl in Dades where we will have dinner and spend the night.


TREKKING DAY 2 : KASBAH OF AIT YOUL DADES / AGURZAGA : AIT YOUL,  DADES (KASBAH, 6 KM FROM DADES DEEP IN THE GORGES - MGOUN-AGUERZAKA VALLEY)

5 hours of marching, last preparations for the trek. Departure at around 8h30, we start our trek in the Dades Valley. We cross many agricultural fields and terraces (corn, barley, rose bushes…). We will discover the vibrant green valley of Ouzighimt, and have lunch in Ighrem N’Aqdim on the river bank, then continue our march to reach the village of Aguerzaka. Here, the water and the shadow are abundant and we will have to get our feet wet to pass. We will spend the night in Aguerzaka.


TREKKING DAY 3 : AGURZAGA / ALMDOUNE: AGUERZAKA - AMESKAR VALLEY- ALEMDOUNE - CAMP - 5H MARCHE.

We leave this vibrant valley and its marvellous kasbahs and gorges, to climb about 200m towards the pass that leads to the valley of Ameskar through a juniper forest. We encouter a new village and various houses on the shape of kasbahs of mud. Lunch in the valley of Amskar-Tahtani then we continue our way following the main path until Alemdoune 1700m.


TREKKING DAY 4 : ALMDOUNE./ BOUTGHRAR:

Alemdoune – Quati valley (bay roses Gorges)- Boutarhrar - Camp - 5h of marching. We descend gently the valley of bay roses (we will pass the gorges in sandals). Small but stunning gorges with many scattered kasbahs along the way. Water still runs abundantly here, gathering an important agglomeration around the river. Lunch on the riverbank near the village of Aznag, we then cross a small ford (passing point) before camping near Boutaghrar.


TREKKING DAY 5 : BOUTGHRAR / TABRKHACHET:  BOUTARHRAR -TIMSTIGUIT - HDIDA - TABARKHACHT

5h30 of marching. We are now at the start of the valley of roses, we regain the valley where we camped on the third day. The rose fields start to show up and take more place in the middle of cereal agricultures (corn, barley, wheat…) and many spiky rosy walls are encircling the fields to prevent goats and sheep from entering and damaging the agriculture. The valley have started transforming and manufacturing rose water products and even exporting abroad. We descend towards Ait Said and Hdida to have lunch then continue towards Tabarkhacht.


TREKKING DAY 6 : TABARKHACH’T - AIT MGHAR :

We continue our descent of the valley of roses until we reach its capital, El-Kelai M’Goun, where the annual festival of roses takes place each May.

Halfway, we ascent a little cliff to have a panoramic view of the whole region. We cross a vast deserted plateau before returning to the freshness of mud kasbahs by the orchards. Overnight in a Berber local house. 3 h 30 of marching.

ADVICE :

For Morocco mountain & desert trek

The following advices are merely suggestions that will let travel in the best conditions possible along with your hosts. You can easily find one at your arrival and it can be really handy to cover yourself from the sun, the wind and the sand, and many other uses that you will discover later.

Walking boots. Depending on the season, it is preferable to wear all terrain sandals especially if you’re visiting during hot days (April, May, June, September or October). Solid boots with warm socks for the other months and for the Atlas mountains excursions. Plus a good pair of baskets would always be efficient.

Good sunglasses are a must have in Morocco.


LIST TYPE OF RECOMMENDED TOOLS :

Back-pack (Also easier to transport on camels that suitcases)

A quilt, temperatures can go as low as -5° (depending on the season)

Small back-pack to carry during daytime

Flashlight, torch (headlamp is the best choice) with extra batteries!

Pocket knif (Leave it the airplane banker during the flight)

A lighter

Paper bags for daily waste

A good jacket

Cotton tights for the cold nights (recommended for winter in the desert)

For the Atlas : Good trekking shoes, a cap, a pair of gloves, impermeable clothes
