Circuit South of Ouirgane Day Trek

Trek Grade: Easy to Moderate

This trek heads south along mule tracks near a saline stream towards the village of Marigha Izdern (1,205m) then Imareghan Noufla (1,224m) where the intensely flavoured olive oil that is so distinctive to this area is produced using old stone equipment driven by mules and donkeys.

From here, with the Adrar Takherkhourte (2,660m) to our right, we trek through countryside with a beautiful mix of field crops, wild flowers and olive groves via Berber hamlets to the little village of Tinzert where salt is mined from huge wells and then the brine left for the water to evaporate on salt pans.  

The return leg is via a pass, the Tizi n’Tarabza (1,706m), from where there can be seen superb views of the Tarabaza, Kik and Moulay Brahim plateaus with the Tizi n’Test Pass and Jbel Oukaïmeden beyond.

 

At the start of the day visitors have the choice of either trekking this route or the Tassa Ouirgane National Park route or choose to do both on separate days.
