At approximately 8:00am, you will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, drive south over gorges and high passes of the upper valleys to the Berber town of Imlil. Here, the group will leave the vehicle and grab a welcome glass of mint tea in the gite d'etape. Then, set out for a 4 km hike up to the Berber villages of Aremd taourirt and targa imoula.
Stop to visit a singular village in the Assif Ait Maizane Valley, built seemingly house upon house on a rage moraine spur. Next, carry on to the equally-quaint village of Sidi Chamharouch, a Berber village set beside a waterfall and small stream. Break for a picnic within full view of the mighty Jbel Toubkal, which is, at 4167m the highest peak in the Maghreb. The last stretch of the day will take you to your overnight accommodation.
Overnight: Toubkal Refuge
Day 2 : Toubkal Refuge to Marrakech (B,L)
Start the day with a climb up the highest peak in North Africa 4167m. Descend via the south circuit for 2 to 3 hours back to the Refuge. There, you will have lunch before you walk back down to Imlil. A driver will pick you up from here, and bring you to your Marrakech accommodation.
