Was up in Ait Bougoumes for 3 days last week so can now answer my own queries!! If anyone is thinking of going up there, it is superb - very friendly people and amazing villages. I came in from Imni Ifri just above Demnate. A mixture of tarmac and piste takes you over to Ait Boulli and then into the Ait Bougoumes valley at Agouti ( the main route in from Azilal is probably also v spectacular but is now all tarmac) The route out to the north leading to Zaouia Ahensal is easy piste thru wonderful scenery as is the route on down to Bin el Ouidane reservoir past the huge "la cathedrale" rock formation. The only available petrol in the valley is from jerry cans (opposite the police station) in Tabant - the valleys capital and it's only eyesore! The "piste" marked on some maps leading south to Bou Tharar is, according to locals, only suitable for hikers and mules, though some visitors have attempted part of it on trials bikes. Can thoroughly recommend Flilou gite at southern end of Agouti - simple dorm accomodation for £4, clean, hot showers and friendly, helpful staff.
