Day Trip to Imlil

Discover the authentic Atlas Mountains

Depart in the morning at 9am, in the direction of the valley of the Atlas and the village of Asni.

This valley offers you another landscape relatively preserved from tourism. You will pass by Tahanaout, before arriving at Asni and then Imlil. You will be near the Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain of North Africa, at 4167m, and located only 63km away from Marrakesh. Upon your arrival, you will meet a Berber guide, and he will take you for a 2hr hike, to discover the lifestyle of the Berbers of the Atlas, and the charming waterfalls of Imlil. You will have lunch at the inhabitant's in a typical Berber house with a fantastic view. This place, called the roof of North Africa attracts a great number of trekkers. This is also because it does not present technical great difficulties and as the assistance of the muleteers and their mules avoids too important physical efforts. The tourism has modified the lifestyle of the mountain Berbers living in the neighbourhood. Numerous inhabitants work now on tourism: muleteers, guides, gîteurs, cooks, carriers. The village of Imlil is the last accessible village by car, since Asni, and is situated only two
days walking from the north Toubkal.

When returning to Marrakesh, you can expect the arrival to be around 4.00 pm.
