Happy Bougmez valley

Day 1
Marrakech – Aït Bougmez – Agouti (1780 m)

Transfer in the central Atlas. Taking the road to Azilal, then we sink into the beautiful valley of Ait Abbas until the beautiful village of Agoute, in the heart of the valley arrival at the gite where we will stay for three nights.
Lunch at the gite. Climb to the small summit of Sidi Chita that offers a beautiful view over the valley.
The Gite of Agouti, owned by Ali, a guide of the Aventure Berbère team, is very confortable. Ali now offers a traditional beldi hammam inside the gite (hammam session offered to celebrate your arrival).

  • Transfer: 4 h 30.

Day 2
Discovery of the valley

Discovery in a loop : climb on one side of the valley, the descent on the other side. We take the discovery trail of n’Aguerd Ouzou : on the edge of the assif Bouwgmmaz the irrigated crops spread, the path zigzags between fields and groves of walnut trees. We observe the threshing areas, an exceptional architecture (tighermt), and traces of dinosaurs…

Discovery of the collective granary of Sidi Moussa. Inside, there are boxes in which each family once enclosed its reserves, especially of grain, which allowed them to survive in the event of a poor harvest. Their strategic location also made it possible to protect the village’s resources in the event of a conflict. The granary is also a marabout that shelters the tomb of Sidi Moussa. Some villagers still come to visit to see their wishes answered.
Walk to the old village of Tabant, where the training center for mountain trades is. The market where the transactions and decisions occur is an extremely important place for the villagers.

  • Walking time: 4 to 5 h.
  • A = D: 280 m.
  • Lodging: gite.
Day 3
Agouti – Arrous gorges, the outsanding mountain adventure

Ascent by the Gorges of Arrous, in a strong mineral world where the Berber take roots. Invisible on the hill where it takes the flock, its village is mixed with the rock to melt. Even his work is discreet, that makes the water run over thousands of green terraces at the bottom o the valley, throwing light, and life. In this mineral landscape, the village also becomes discreet, hidden among the trees or clinging to the mountainside.
Walk through the gorges to go for some local tea in the village ofAït Saïd. Passage through the village of Tighza. Return to the gite of Agouti for the last night in the happy valley.

  • Walking time: 3 to 5 h.
  • A = D: 450 m (flexible according to wishes).
  • Lodging: gite.
Day 4
Agouti – Marrakech

Quiet return to Marrakech going by the waterfalls of Ouzoud ; tasting of a berber tagine in a small restaurant by the waterfalls. And, why not, a swim in one of the basins at the foot of the waterfalls. Arrival in the afternoon.

  • Walking time: 1 to 2 h.
  • A = D: 150 m.
