A week-long hike in the Central High Atlas in mid March 2015 by a self-led group of two. If you have any questions about the hike/area/planning please leave a comment on the relevant entry or on this page and I will get back to you.
Cowboy-camped 4 nights. Stayed in gîtes two nights. The daily entries in red mark where we slept.
Mostly sunny with a cold wind during the day and night-time temperatures around freezing. No precipitation.
Day 1: Marrakesh to trailhead to Tighza
Day 2: Tighza to near Tamzrit
Day 3: Near Tamzrit to Megdaz
Day 4: Megdaz to Amezri
Day 5: Amezri to near Ghougoult
Day 6: Near Ghougoult to Agouti
Day 7: Taxis back to Marrakesh
Carried Alan Palmer's guidebook, a GPS and overview maps.
Scenic, moderately strenuous hiking up to around 3000m on mostly good paths. I preferred camping as opposed to staying in villages. If snow is not your thing then hike later in the year than March because it will be snowy on the Tarkeddit plateau.
