In the words of Gordon, the second trip in the 40tude 2021 Adventure Series is a ‘let’s go up up it’ challenge!
Conquer Mount M’Guon (4071m), a summit in the heart of the M'Guon Massif, hidden deep in the Central High Atlas mountains.
The M'Goun Massif is a spectacular spine of mountain ridges and sculpted valleys and this summit is the second highest point in North Africa. Located in the remote Ait Bougamez Valley, ‘The Happiness Valley’, which gets its name from the cheerful and welcoming local people, this summit is regarded as Morocco’s best kept secret.
We will follow ancient caravan routes as we trek through the valley and high plateau, finally reaching Mount M’Goun which is the valley’s crowning glory and a superb peak for true adventurers aspiring to get well off the beaten track. The Massif is surrounded by fragrant orchards, dramatic gorges and lush pastures and we discover a hidden pocket of Morocco where travellers are rarely seen. By day we trek through this amazing scenery while at night, we camp on the beautiful high pastures used by nomadic shepherds.
This is a unique opportunity to share an exceptional experience with fellow supporters while challenging yourself and raising all-important funds for 40tude.
