Trekking in Morocco 8 Days

Trekking 8 days/7 nights: Yagour Plateau treks

Trekking in Morocco: Near Marrakech, the Yagour plateau, a huge high altitude plateau backed by Mount Toubkal. The Yagour is a place of mountain pasture for the nomads of the High Atlas in summer, and a major site in Morocco for its rock engravings.

Here is a superb High Atlas trek, on a little frequented region of Toubkal, to discover the most beautiful rock engravings of the High Atlas. This original hike in the High Atlas will take you through wild landscapes of great diversity: High valleys, passes, high plateaus, gorges, earthen villages clinging to the mountainside, rivers and waterfalls.

The Tizi N’Tichka pass will be our access route to the highlands of the Yagour and its rock carvings. We will end the crossing of the Yagour plateau by the beautiful and wild Zat valley unknown to travelers, except for a few rare hikers. Along the Zat wadi which winds through this magnificent valley, paths lost in lush greenery await you. The Zat valley has superb earthen villages where its inhabitants are very attached to their traditions and their Amazigh culture.

 At the end of the hike, the potters’ village of Talataste deserves a stopover, before finding our vehicle in the village of Tighdouine to return to Marrakech. The village has natural springs, including a sparkling one very famous for its healing properties.

This superb High Atlas trek from Tichka to the Zat valley, crossing the Yagour plateau, promises you beautiful landscapes and exceptional views.

Hiker who loves nature and discoveries, meet people who represent the real Morocco anchored in its traditions and culture. The Yagour and its rock carvings is part of these Morocco trips.

Ait ben haddou desert tour
High Atlas, Toubkal, Mgoun treks

Take a walk up Toubkal or Mgoun; Moroccan hikers who enjoy vast open spaces find the High Atlas to be a favored region for hiking. Mountain hikes of all skill levels are available, from the skilled trekker to the simple walker in love with nature, in the high valleys of Toubkal and its perched settlements or the highlands of M’goun to meet the transhumant Berbers. 

Some people view the High Atlas trip between Toubkal and Mgoun as their opportunity to transcend themselves and complete the Great Crossing of the Atlas or to ascend Toubkal and reach M’goun’s summit.

Others may enjoy walking through the serene Zat valley, exploring the Berber settlements of the Toubkal mountain, or exploring Yagour’s nomadic territories in the High Atlas with their rock engravings.

 It also involves hiking in the lovely Rose Valley or trekking through the high valleys of Mgoun to explore the canyons of M’goun and Tassaout. The M’goun massif was given the UNESCO “Global Geopark” designation in 2014. The Kasbahs of the Atlas trip between Telouet and Ait Benhaddou is a fantastic substitute for a journey over the Moroccan desert in the winter and spring. Consider an à la carte trip: All of our Moroccan excursions may be customized to fit your holiday schedule. The “tailor-made” vacation is the best way to learn about Morocco.
