“Ait Bougummez” Best Kept Secret Valley

Beyond the city of Azilal, a paved road,  climbs up to a remote valley in the High Atlas mountains, Ait Bougummez, nicknamed Happy Valley for the purported disposition of its inhabitants. until fairly recently there was no paved road to the valley, so it was plausible that this was still an unspoiled Shangri La.The  Ait Bougummez Valley itself is plateau in the Central High Atlas,intensely cultivated in precise geometric patterns that form intricate mosaics on the fertile valley floor, offering plenty of walks alongside bobbling brooks where women wash their clothes, beside verdant green  fields and under ancient walnut trees on the outskirts of small villages. Tow con-shaped peaks rise from the valley floor, one of which is home to the communal granary of Sidi Moussa that is also a shrine, a local holy man whose healing powers are said to be especially effective in cases of infertility. After visit small museum inside climbs to the upper floors of the circular granary to admire the 360-degree views of the valley. For the more energetic, Ait Bougumez benefits from its proximity to M’Goun ( 4071 m ) and its surrounding massif.
