We hardly leave the agitation of Marrakech before we find ourselves, almost with no transition, in the heart of a Berber country with its mud- or rock-built villages, its terraced agriculture attacking the valley sides, and with its legendary hospitality. From suspended valleys, we will reach the culminating point of the Atlas range. With its 4167 m, Toubkal offers a grandiose panorama : north :the Haouz and Marrakech plain; south: Djebel Siroua (3304 m) and the vast areas of the Moroccan Sahara. This beautiful journey, by its originality and its line away from the known tourist axes, offers a discovery of the ancestral life of these mountains. Whether you cross the villages or the high pasture lands, you will appreciate the sincere welcome of the inhabitants.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Transfer from the airport to the hotel in Marrakech.

Day 2: Drive by minibus to Tassa Ouirgane. We pass by the dramatic gorges at Moulay Brahim before continuing on to Asni, a Berber village, situated in the heart of a lush valley dominated by Toubkal. At Tassa Ouirgane we meet the muleteers at the beginning of the trek in the Azaden valley. We now enter the Toubkal National Park with its special reserve for the mouflon (mountain sheep). Camp at Tizien 1500m).

Day 3: Passing through the villages in the Azaden valley we arrive at Tizi Oussem. The trek starts with a walk in a giant garden of cultivated terraces, walnut trees and colourful ochre houses. After a picnic lunch we leave the luggage at Azib Tamsoulte and climb up to the waterfalls at Ighouliden. These are the highest in the massif at 50m, return to camp at Tamsoulte 2400m.

Day 4: We pass junipers forests on the way up to the Tizi Mzik col (2489m); then descend towards the village of Armed. Night in a guest house.

Day 5: A pleasant walk with interesting scenery leads through valleys irrigated by a system adapted for the arid mountains. We see the marabout (tomb) in Sidi Chamharouche 2310m then continue to camp at the foot of Toubkal 3207m.

Day 6: Ascend Toubkal: at a height of 4167m it is the giant of the whole of North Africa. The ascent is not technically difficult but consists of walking on paths with bouldery sections. From the summit we see a superb view of the Marrakech plain, the Jbel Siroua and of the Sahara. Descend to Armed. Night in a guest house.

Day 7: After a half hour descent to Imlil, we reach our minibus to return to Marrakech. We arrive at the hotel in Marrakech late morning. Plenty of time to explore Marrakech.
