Marrakech - Imlil � tizi ntamatere (2279m) � wanskra � tachdirth
From Imlil, we set out along a piste for a 1 hour and 45 minutes hike towards the east up to the tizi n�tamaterte (2279m), on through fields of barley and orchards of walnuts , apple and cherry trees until we reach the village of tamaterte. Once through the village, we shall take a path which leads us up though pine and juniper woods. We stop at the tizi to admire the Imlil and imnane valleys, this latter with its many berber villages tucked precariously onto the slopes stretching around us. We carry on along the upper valley slopes for another hour or so to the villages of first Wanskra and then Amagdoul set amidst terraced plots of land carved from the hard slopes where we shall stop for our field picnic on the plateau, which iw used in summer as a favoured bivouac site.
Our afternoon will be spent hiking for some 2 hours up through the valley along the mule trails untill we reach the pretty and the oldest berber village in the toubkal massif ( tachdirth 2291m), set amongst terraced plots clawed from the surrounding craggy slopes, where we will overnight in a gite d�etape.
Wanskra � tizi n�likemet � aazib n�likemt
After an early breakfast, we set out for 7 hours hike, 4 hours up foothills of tizi Likemet (3550m), where we will have to stop and enjoy the view, again, giving us some awesome views of the jagged peaks and verdant valleys.
From here we set off downhill for 1 hour then stop for our picnic.
After lunch, another hour to get to the cam which set off just beside the Aouri river, with a night in tents in Azib n�likemet .
Aazib n�likemet - tizi n�aouri - amsouzarte
From the Azib we start our 7 hours hike by walking up the Aouri river and directly on to the tizi n� aouri (3109m) where we will stop for our picnic surrounded by peaks and valleys.
This afternoon we slowly descend along the zig-zaging paths into the Ighir n�tagnite until we arrive at the berber village of tagnite in tifnoute valley. A brief stop before hiking down further until we reach the village of Amsouzarte (1740m) where we will have dinner in a berber family�s home.
Amsouzarte � Imhilne � Lake Ifni
After breakfast, today�s hike is shorter than the previous day�s, for tomorrow and the day after are reasonably tough going.
We strike out south up the valley of Assif n�izli, through the villages of abtraoui, takaterte and imhilne until we arrive at the lake ifni, (2295m) after some 4 hours, where we will stop for our picnic in the midst of quiet waters and steep slopes of the looming mountains.
Here, we set up camp whilst our evening�s meal is being prepared.
Lake ifni- tizi n�ounoums- Toubkal refuge
After breakfast, rested and refreshed, we set out on a 6 hours hike towards the north-west up to the col of tizi ounnoums (3600m).
Once through the pass, we stop for our picnic amongst awesome surroundings of the toubkal massif. From here we will continue directly to the toubkal refuge (3207m) where we can either bivouac on the surrounding slopes or overnight in the refuge.
Whilst tonight�s dinner is being prepared, there will be ample opportunity to stroll around the area and look at tomorrow�s challenge - the summit of the highest jbel in the Maghreb.
Toubkal refuge � toubkal summit 4167m � toubkal refuge
A very early breakfast to set out at around 5 in the morning to obtain after 3 hour steep climb, the highest peak in the Maghreb.
The panorama from the summit is simply stunning.
This remarkable climb and view is really worth the effort.
Whenever you are ready, we shall descend via the Ihibi sud - south circuit - for a straight-forward 2 to 3 hours descent back to the refuge and our picnic and stroll around the surrounding slopes until dinner is ready.
Toubkal refuge � Sidi chamharouch � Aroumd � Imlil
After breakfast and when we are ready, we shall then set off towards the north along steeply descending, zigzagging trails of the higher slopes of the valley of assif n�issganne, towards the berber village of sidi chamharouch.
Set beside a waterfall, with its homes surpringly built one into the other, it is yet another sight to be enjoyed.
There is a pilgrimage marabout shrine here, probably the remnant of pre-islamic culture , but forbidden to non muslims.
On leaving the village, we shall notice a tree, sacred to the local berbers, where they hang strips of coloured cloth and pile up stones as we descend for some 8 kms.
High above the valley of assif n�ait misane, down zigzagging trails around granite and basalt grey rocks to the remarkable village of aroumd 1880m, built on a spur of moraine rock & commanding one of the more fertile valleys of the high atlas mountains with terraced, irrigated plots and fields of maize, onions and fruit trees on all sides.
Here, we shall stop for our picnic prior to contnuing on for about 3 kms along mule tracks zigzagging above the river to arrive finally, at the berber village of Imlil, the end of the trek.
Transportation, is then provided to return you to Marrakech.
