1 Day (6/7 hours)
Perfect trek for those who can’t get enough of mountains! An 8 hour trek west of Imlil past Berber hamlets with a stunning mountain panorama including the Jbel Oukaïmeden range. We will arrive to a waterfall where a refreshing swim may be possible. The waterfalls are by juniper and pine forest and a transhumance village, inhabited by shepherds in summer.
Starting time 8/9 AM
The further walk heads west from Imlil (1,740m) up through the sweet almond, walnut and apple groves offering a panoramic vista of the beautiful valley and Berber hamlets of Tanghourt, Fimlil and of M’Zik.
There is a strenuous ascent to the pass, the Tizi M’Zik (2,664m) from where there is a splendid view of the Jbel Oukaïmeden range, the plateau of Tazaghârt and of the pretty Assif Aït n’Ouissedene lined with palms. Next the walk descends through juniper and pine woods between Jbel Tasghimout (2,664m) and Adrar Adj (3,729m) to the Tamsoult Cascade (2,204m). It’s a lovely spot for a picnic lunch and from late spring to early autumn, a lovely place to bathe. The return leg is via the same general route but by different paths via the Tizi M’Zik back to Imlil. The change of the paths will give you new, interesting views to admire.
