Departure on a private 4WD from Marrakech around 9am, and drive towards Imlil valley passing by Moulay Brahim Gorges, Asni center (well-known by its weekly Saturday Berber market). After 17km we arrive to Imlil (1,740m), a starting point of several trekking and walking options through the High Atlas valleys and Berber villages including Mount Toubkal (4167m) the highest summit in North Africa. Here you will leave our vehicle to take a welcome glass of mint tea in the village and meet your local guide prior to setting out for some 4km excursion (2 or 3 hours walk). Towards the south to the Berber village of Armed (2000m) passing the hamlets of Ait souka, Targa, Imoula and up to Armed village where you will enjoy a panoramic view over the surounding villages and the high Atlas Peaks such as Toubkal, Aguelzim summit, Adge, Tamatert pass, Mazzik pass…
A short visit through Armed with its narrow streets including a mint-tea in one of the local Berber houses, then walk through the irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables and always surrounded by almond and walnut trees. The trek then continues for another half an hour until the stop for lunch which will be served among a Berber familly in the village of M’zik. After lunch you set off back down the other side of the valley back to Imlil passing by the village of Arghen, and our Imlil valley short day trek ends in Marrakech.
