The M'goun Mountain, also known as Ighil Mgoun, is located in Central High Atlas at 4068 metres and is the fourth highest peak of the Atlas Mountains. The mountain is inhabited by the Ait Atta  tribe who graze their goats and camel herds at the foot of M'goun during the summer months. The local Berber tribes live in small communities and lead semi-nomadic lives, utilizing the forests and amazing cultivated lands such as Ait Bougmez Valley and Rose Valley.  The wildlife that can be seen in these mountains include hare/rabbit,fox, toads,frogs, vultures, and the rare Bonelli-eagle.
