Director – Yak Travel
Alan first began trekking in Morocco over 30 years ago. He immediately fell in love with the country and has been returning there to trek ever since.
In 2010 he published Moroccan Atlas the Trekking Guide (Trailblazer, 2010) which he completely revised and expanded for the second edition (2014). In addition, he regularly writes articles for travel magazines and makes presentations about Morocco and north-east India, both in this country and in India. This year he updated The High Atlas chapter for the forthcoming edition of Rough Guide Morocco.
In 2012 he founded Trek in Morocco Limited, and began organising bespoke mountain treks for individuals and small groups throughout Morocco. He renamed and rebranded his company as Yak Travel in 2015 to mark the launch of a new programme of treks and tours in north-east India, with a particular focus on the rarely visited regions of Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland.
