Trek Around Djebel Mgoun

-----

 

These are photos of a short trek that I did alone around Djebel Mgoun in October 2003.  I started the trek at the small village of Tatrarat (South of Djebel Mgoun, North of Skoura). I crossed the Atlas range at the pass between Djebels Mgoun and Oumassine, to reach the source of Oued Tessaout. From there I crossed Tizi-n-Oumsoud (pass) and went down along Assif Oulilimt (river) to the village of El Mrabitine. Then I successively crossed Tizi-n-Issouka and Tizi-n-Ait-Ahmed before reaching the villages of Imeskar et Tahtani and Amajgag (end of the trek).
