Valleys and Passes East of Imlil Day Trek

Trip Grade: Moderate to Strenuous

A seven hour trek past Berber hamlets and 2 mountain passes, with Jbel Oukaïmeden in sight.  The route is circular, taking in as much scenery and natural beauty as is possible in 1 day. 

The trek begins by heading east from Imlil (1,740m) along the Tamatert Valley before turning north through the pass named Tizi n’Tamatert (2,279m) and down via the Berber village of Tinerhourhine into the Imenane valley. This valley is then followed to the north, along winding mule trails through almond, walnut and apple groves and terraced Berber hamlets to the villages of Ikiss and up to Amssakrou. Here a picnic lunch is normally taken, offering a superb view of the peak of Jbel Oukaïmeden (3,268m) and the 2 passes, Tizi n’Ou Arg (2,258m) and Tizi n’Tiratene (2,268m). The return is in a westerly direction via the pass, Tizi n’Aguerssiouâl, then through the Assif n’ Aït Mizane Valley and back to Imlil.

Next the walk continues along mule trails and past escarpments through the Tizi n’Aguerssiouâl Pass (1,767m) and on to the village of Aguerssiouâl in the Assif n’ Aït Mizane Valley (2,664m) and then south back up the valley towards the peaks of Jbel Toubkal, Aguelzim and Aksouâl to the villages of Taddart and Aït Souka where the walk heads east back in 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: The Tizi M’Zik Pass and Tamsoult Waterfalland the Jbel Toubkal Views trek which is considerably easier than the other two.
