Perfect trek for nature lovers. Let us introduce you to our breathtaking seven hour trek past Berber hamlets and 2 mountain passes, with the splendid Jbel Oukaïmeden in sight. The route is super exciting and circular, taking in as much scenery and natural beauty as is possible in 1 day.
Starting time 8/9 AM
The trek begins by heading east from Imlil (1,740m) along the Tamatert Valley before turning north through the pass named Tizi n’Tamatert (2,279m) and down via the Berber village of Tinerhourhine into the Imenane valley. This valley is then followed to the north, along winding mule trails through fragrant walnut and apple groves and terraced Berber hamlets to the villages of Ikiss and up to Amssakrou. In this delicious place we will have a picnic where lunch will be taken. Super news: you’ll have a superb view of the peak of Jbel Oukaïmeden (3,268m) and the 2 passes, Tizi n’Ou Arg (2,258m) and Tizi n’Tiratene (2,268m). The return is equally exciting! It is in a westerly direction via the pass, Tizi n’Aguerssiouâl, then through the Assif n’ Aït Mizane Valley and back to Imlil.
Next the walk continues along mule trails and past escarpments through the Tizi n’Aguerssiouâl Pass (1,767m) and on to the village of Aguerssiouâl in the Assif n’ Aït Mizane Valley (2,664m). We will then head south back up the valley towards the peaks of Jbel Toubkal, Aguelzim and Aksouâl to the villages of Taddart and Aït Souka where the walk heads east back in Imlil.
