THIS TREK IS AVAILABLE FROM END OF MAY TO END OF OCTOBER
Day One: MARRAKECH-IMLIL-TACHEDDIRT
We leave Marrakech After breakfast then drive to Imlil valley via Asni. Imlil is the main trail for hikers, and a bustling market town. There is a constant movement of people coming down the mountain, and an equal distribution of the activity of those who are about to embark on the adventure. We meet our team and once all our equipment is loaded, we start walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt some 8kms beyond Imlil. Soon, the trail begins to increase as we climb to Tizi N'Tamatert (2279m). We then descend the pretty village of Ouaneskra and continue for another half-hour, Tacheddirt (3000m), where we usually camp near the river.
Day Two: TACHEDDIRT - AZIB LIKEMT
Crossing the valley, we begin a long, slow climb to Tizi Likemt (3555m). The course is quite difficult because there is a considerable amount of debris on the ground. At the top, we enjoy our first view of the well Toubkal before a long descent down to the village of Azib Likemt, where we camp for the night.
Day Three: AZIB LIKEMT - TIZI N’OURAI - AMSOUZERT
This long but relatively easy day takes us through a variety of contrasting landscapes. Of Tizi Ououraine (3120m) we enjoy other views Toubkal, the top face is Ifni and the Dome (3876m). The trail leads to Amsouzert, one of the most striking villages in the region, where we spend the night - dormitories - Cottage in a simple village.
Day Four: AMSOUZERT - IFNI LAC
West Amsouzert are several small villages, we are exploring as we make our way to Lake Ifni, the only lake in the mountains. This is an unforgettable sight, surrounded by Rocky Mountains and giant piles of rubble, and it is unusually deep. We expect to arrive before noon and spend the afternoon relaxing at the beach. Evening we camp in this area.
Day Five: LAC IFNI - TOUBKAL REFUGE
By now we should be both good and conditioned and ready to face the most difficult day of the trek. We make our way along a steep path that leads talus seemingly endless. Finally we reach the Tizi n'Ouanoums (3664m), a narrow ledge of rock between two trees. From there it is a long zigzag descent to Nelter Hut, a mountain hut where we spend the night (or alternatively outside the camp).
Day Six: REFUGE – TOUBKAL ASCENT - IMLIL
We leave before dawn, following a well-worn route to the summit. If the conditions are right it should not take more than 2-3 hours to reach the summit, where we have a clear view of the range and Atlas Marrakech plain beyond. Back to base, we then descend quickly enough to the villages of Sidi Chamharouch and Aremd before Mizane follow the river along a path well wooded to the trailhead at Imlil.
