This seven-day trek (itinerary in dotted red line in the map below) connects the small village of Arous (yellow dot at the top-right of the map) in the Ait Bou-Guemez Valley to Anmiter (orange dot at the bottom-left) near Telouet. My friend Oumar Oulaїdi (a CFAMM certified guide, email: marocprofond@wanadoo.fr) arranged for me a muleteer and his mule from the Ait Bou-Guemez Valley to come with me. I did this trek mid-April 2013. The weather was almost perfect, though the air was often hazier than I had expected for that time of the year.

Mohamed, the muleteer selected for me by Oumar Oulaidi, was also an excellent cook and guide. In addition, he speaks very good French.
