What to Expect

The trek takes a route south from Imlil (1,740m) to the hamlet of Achaine and on to the Berber village of Aroumd (1,843m), passing via almond and walnut groves and numerous hamlets perched on the slopes en route and offering superb views of Jbel Toubkal and the adjacent peaks.

It’s time to discover another exciting part of this region! There are two of the most interesting settlements: first one is Aroumd - a village built on a large glacial morainic spur overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields. The second one is the pretty village of Sidi Chamharouch (2,310m) - a Berber village with a waterfall and a marabout shrine visited by devout Muslims.

Picnic lunch will be served at a beautiful viewpoint where Jbel Toubkal and the neighbouring peaks are clearly visible.
