Tour Itinerary

DAY1,MARRAKECH * IMLIL * TACHEDDIRT

Departing Marrakech we will drive from Marrakech to Imlil via Asni. As the gateway to Jebel Toubkal, Imlil is a bustling village filled with market stalls, cafes, and and hikers at various stages of their journeys. Gear loaded, we rendezvous with the mule team and head through the valley to Tacheddirt, about 8 km. The trail soon rises as we continue toward Tizi n'Tamatart at 2279 m. From here the trail descends to the picturesque village of Ouaneskra, and another 30 minutes hike gets us to Tacheddirt. With good conditions we will make camp near to the river and relax and enjoy dinner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided.

DAY2,* TACHEDDIRT * AZIB LIKEMT

After traversing the valley we begin our gradual ascent to Tizi Likemt pass at 3555 m. This is a long and tough climb, and you will encounter an abundance of scree on your way. At the top of the pass you will get your first look at the spectacular Toubkal Massif. The rest of the day's hike is a long descent to Azib Likemt, where we make camp.

DAY3,AZIB LIKEMT * TIZI N'OURAI *Amsouzert

Today's trek is fairly easy compared to Day 2, but somewhat long. We'll pass through various distinctive landscapes. Once in Tizi n'Ourai at 3120 m., we are treated once again to panoramic vistas of the Atlas mountains, the summit of Jebel Toubkal, its east face and Ifni Dome, at 3867 m. We continue on the trail leading to Amsouzert, one of the most picturesque villages in the area, and make camp for the night in a local gite, or guesthouse.

DAY 4,AMSOUZERT * LAKE IFNI

On today's hike we will explore the several small villages that lay on the western side of Amsouzert as we continue to Lake Ifni, the only one in the massif region. Arriving by midday, the lake is a remarkable sight, a deep turquoise jewel surrounded by stark mountains and giant boulders. Arriving by midday, we'll relax here, enjoying lunch and taking in the tranquil atmosphere. Tonight we'll make camp nearby.

DAY 5,LAKE IFNI * NILTNER HUT

Having adjusted to altitude and readied ourselves physically, we set out today on the most challenging trek. Making our way gradually up the long, scree slope our path brings us to a narrow ledge stretching between two rock shafts, Tizi n'Ouanoums, at 3664 m. The descent to Niltner Hut, one of two base camps at the foot of Jebel Toubkal, is a long and winding one. Here we spend the night dormitory-style, or, conditions permitting, camp outside.

DAY 6 ,TOUBKAL SUMMIT * IMLIL

Setting out before daylight, we head out along the path toward the summit. Conditions permitting the trek should take around 2-3 hours. The panoramic views from atop Toubkal are panoramic and awe-inspiring, revealing the entirety of the majestic range, the Marrakech plains to the north, and the edge of the Sahara to the south. Our descent back to base pretty quickly and we will continue to the villages of Armed and Sidi Chamharouch. Continuing along the Mizhane River through a densely forested trail we will arrive at our termination point back in Imlil. From here we transport you back to your accommodation in Marrakech.
