We will depart Marrakech at 8:00 AM and head out in the direction of the High Atlas Mountains and the village of Asni. Relatively untouched by the tourism business, traversing this beautiful landscape will lead us to Tahannaout, where we will pause to visit an argan oil cooperative. We will continue on to the small village of Asni, then begin the ascent to Imlil, located at the foothills of Mount Toubkal. The last village accessible by road on Mount Toubkal, Imill is a true “Moroccan Chamonix.”
At an elevation of 4,167 meters, Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa. Upon our arrival we will be welcomed into a Berber family home for tea, then we will begin the 2 hour hike to the beautiful waterfalls of Imlil. This is a relatively easy trek that does not require excessive physical exertion. Lunch will be served in a traditional restuarant where you will enjoy a breathtaking view and if you are fortunate enough to plan your visit on a Tuesday or a Saturday, you will enjoy a visit to a rural souk. We will descend Imlil in the late afternoon, and arrive back to Marrakech around 19:00.
