LMT Section 16: From El Mtain to Falougha
Start your hike from the same place where you finished the day before in the historic main square of el Mtain which, by the way, is worth a proper visit. Take the tiny paved road next to the LMT information panel which leads you to the silk factory and then follow the flight of steps next to it to arrive on the paved road. Walk downhill a few meters before turning right at the marks and taking the steps to reach the main Mchikha-el Mtain paved road. Go across it and continue past the molasses (dibs) press, leaving the cow farm on your left. Walk downstream and then cross the bridge before taking the cleared path through the oak and pine forest. Go past the deserted hamlet and then take the dirt road below the umbrella pine forest. After making several turns, leave the road on an un-cleared path towards the valley and walk along it until you reach the paved road. Then cross the bridge and take the cleared path on the other side of the valley before starting your climb up to the dirt road. You pass by some farms as well as a remarkable oak tree before taking a right turn in front of the communication tower. Walk along the dirt road and then take the path to the left until you start the steep climb to reach Jouar el Haouz village. Then cross the road and continue on the dirt road, passing by the water reservoir and Ain el Rejme from where you start to climb to the right towards the ridge above the hill lake. Continue walking along the path then the dirt road before leaving it further on and descending towards the end of this section which is at Soha Village resort.
