The ascension to Mount M’Goun (4,071 meters) in the Atlas Mountain Range of Morocco was a turning point for me as a trekker. I was totally taken by surprise when, during the ascension that started at our base camp at 2,900 mts took over 5 hours and on the way up I came across shell fossils (see below)!
This was my first trip to heights of over 1,500 meters above sea level and since then I haven’t stopped challenging myself to go higher and higher. My top until now has been Serro Toco in the Atacama Desert, Chile with 5,200 mts.
There is nothing as gratifying as the feeling of being on the top of the world, believe me! I’ve never been the same since. I have learnt to listen to my body, control my mind, fears and administrate well my much needed energy to achieve my goals.
