The Tizi M’Zik Pass and Tamsoult Waterfall Day Trek

Trip Grade: Moderate to Strenuous

An 8 hour trek west of Imlil past Berber hamlets with a stunning mountain panorama including the Jbel Oukaïmeden range. Features a waterfall where a swim may be possible, juniper and pine forest and a transhumance village (inhabited by shepherds in summer).

The walk heads west from Imlil (1,740m) up through almond, walnut and apple groves offering a panoramic vista of the beautiful valley and Berber hamlets of Tanghourt, Fimlil and of M’Zik.

There is a strenuous ascent to the pass, the Tizi M’Zik (2,664m) from where there is a splendid view of the Jbel Oukaïmeden range, the plateau of Tazaghârt and of the pretty Assif Aït n’Ouissedene lined with palms. Next the walk descends through juniper and pine woods between Jbel Tasghimout (2,664m) and Adrar Adj (3,729m) to the Tamsoult Cascade (2,204m), a lovely spot for a picnic lunch and from late spring to early autumn, a lovely place to bathe. The return leg is via the same general route but by different paths via the Tizi M’Zik back to Imlil.

NOTE

This is one of three treks departing from Imlil, trekkers may choose which of the treks they wish to take at the start of the trek or choose to do all three on separate days. The alternative treks are: Valleys and Passes East of Imlil and the Jbel Toubkal Views trek which is considerably easier than the other two.
