Walking and hiking in The High Atlas Mountains

Marrakech to the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco on a trek through the beautiful Imenane Valley is a true Berber Valleys adventure in 2 unforgettable days. Trek from Marrakech city and go deep into tiny hamlets and villages of the ethnic Berber, a herding and farming community. Visit their homes and interact with a glimpse of their day to day living.

Day 1: Marrakech – Imlil –Tizi Tamatert – Imnane Valley

After being picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech at around 8:30 you will be transferred to Mouly Brahim Gorges onto the Berber town of Imlil (1745m). Imlil is situated in the upper foothills of the Western High Atlas Mountains, a natural paradise where trails set out in all direction. Here we leave our vehicle. Meet up with Mount Toubkal local Berber team guide and muleteer for Berber tea before we start our trek up winding mule tracks to the Tizi N’tamatert pass (2279m) to enjoy the amazing panorama of the surrounding Atlas Mountains ranges. You will have your picnic lunch on the Tamatert pass, overlooking Jebel Oukaimeden (3205m) and the beautiful encircled plateau. After lunch, you will set off following the path down to a small traditional Berber village before we arrive at one called Tingherune, where we will spend the night. We will stay in a Berber guesthouse, will be simple and basic but has beds with foam mattresses. The food will be cooked by the Mount Toubkal expedition cook who is traveling with you. 5 hours walking.

Day 2: Imnane Valley – Tizi N’Aguersioul- Imlil – Marrakech

After helping to load our mules and a good breakfast, you set off down the Assif Imnane Valley passing through several Traditional Berber villages. This offers a perfect chance to see the peaceful Mountain life first hand, an experience set in direct contrast to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech city. We then ascend to the Tizi N’Aguersioul (2000m) which offers more stunning panoramic views. Once we pass the col, we then head down further winding mule tracks leading to the village of Aguersioule (1600m). Here, we will rest and eat lunch, before returning to Marrakech city. 6 hours walking.
