Day Trip from Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains

 

The beautiful village of Imlil is in the heart of the Atlas Mountains at the base of the highest peak in North Africa in Mount Toubkal National Park. The terrain that surrounds this peaceful village is a rich contrast from that of the country’s lowlands. Here, pink houses are spaced unevenly through the village with numerous trees – mostly walnut – interspersed around them.

    Day 1: Marrakech – Tahnaout – Asni – Imlil Valley 1740m– Aroumd Village 2000m – Possible to hike up to some peak

    Departing from Marrakech with Trekking Morocco Mountains Driver and Guide, we take the tarred road towards Imlil. Small villages follow each other in a vast landscape planted with olive trees, separated by a natural border made of prickly pear cactuses.

    we will enjoy breathtaking views including the snowy summits of the High Atlas Mountains. We’ll stop in the small mountain village of Aremd. Here people come every Saturday to the Asni Berber Market to sell their goods and buy their needs.

    We continue to Imlil valley (64 km from Marrakech) in the Toubkal Massif ) , the highest in North Africa (Toubkal 4167m). , which is known for its walnuts, apples and cherries. From Imlil village we go on a short trek by foot or mule wetween some berber villages...

    We shall stop at Aroumd to visit this rather singular village in the Assif Aït Mizane Valley, built seemingly house upon house, overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables and surrounded by almond and walnut trees
