Berber Villages & Mt Toubkal Ascent
Day 1: Marrakech – Imi Oughlad – Tizian
The first day is around 5 hours long and will begin with your arrival via arranged transport from Marrakech to Imi Oughlad (1340m) where you will meet your guide and the team, your cook and your mule. The trek takes you past a vast forest of pine, juniper and oak trees, while you make your way to Tizian, which will give you a stunning view of the Ouirgan Valley, before you finish the night in a local gite.
Day 2: Tizian – Tizi Oussem – Tamsoult
6 hours of trekking on the second day will yield a view of the beautiful Azzaden Valley with colourful villages and hills, the Azzaden River circled by homes, an amazing vista that includes the Tazaghart Plateau and a huge section of the Atlas Mountain chain. Your evening will finish at 2700m in Tamsoult Refuge or in tents, dependent on the conditions.
Day 3: Tamsoult – Ighouliden – Tizi Aguelzim – Toubkal
Day 3 will bring you past the biggest waterfall in the Toubkal region, a visually stunning start to the day, before you embark upon 7-8 hours of trekking, up a steep incline to reach the Aguelzim Pass at 3600m. The pass has a breathtaking view over the Atlas Mountain villages and plain of Elhaouz. Your night will be spent in a refuge or tents at 3208m.
