The M’Goun is located in the central part of the High Atlas . From an administrative point of view, it belongs to the province of Ouarzazate .The Assif Mgoun, a tributary of the Dades, rises at the foot of the mountains and waters the rural town of Ighil not Oumgoun up Kalaat M’gouna where it flows into the assif Dades .

The summit Mgoun consists of a long ridge that approach or exceed the 4000 meters over a distance of ten kilometers. In fact this is a ridge anticline . The rock to the surface, is a limestone disk. Its northern side has been sculpted by glaciers during the ice ages of theQuaternary so that today there are fourteen valleys aligned perpendicular to the ridge.
