Marrakesh - Asni - Imi Oughlad - Tizi Oussem
Today you’ll be picked up in Marrakesh and transferred to Imi Oughlad. From here, the trail leads mainly uphill from the valley, and as you begin to climb the views across the mountains get more impressive. Then, as you reach the Tizi n’Tacht pass at 6888ft you’ll see a spectacular view of the majestic Atlas Mountains. Around 30 minutes later, you’ll arrive at a small spring where you can rest your feet as the guide prepares a simple lunch. After lunch, it’s another 1 ½ hours walk to the village of Tizi Oussem at 5600ft overlooking the Azzedane Valley with its unusual terraced fields. In Tizi Oussem, you’ll spend the night in a basic lodge with views across the valley, in a room sleeping 4-6 people.
Tizi Oussem - Imlil
After breakfast it’s time to pull on your hiking boots again as you set off on the Berber trail uphill through ancient juniper trees to the M’Zig pass at 8170 ft. After 1½ hours, you’ll reach the top where you’ll be greeted by another amazing view. On one side, you’ll see the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas, and on the other side you’ll see the green valleys around the village of Imlil. You’ll stay the night in a basic lodge near Imlil, the rooms will again be shared with your fellow Atlas Mountains trekkers. Once you’re settled in, you can freshen up with a nice hot shower and relax with a cup of mint tea.
Departure from Imlil - Marrakesh
After breakfast, it’s time to say goodbye to the village and make your way on foot to Imlil where your transfer will be waiting to take you back to the completely different world. We do suggest an extra night in Marrakesh on your return.
