Marrakech Imlil and Asni Day Trip
Also highly recommended is a trip to the high Atlas village of Imlil, gateway to the magnificent Jbel Toubkal crowning wonder of the Atlas range and the tallest mountain in North Africa. Please note that even in winter the snow line is normally above Imlil. The scenery is truly stunning and remarkably accessible from Marrakech at around an hour and a quarter’s drive. The excursion normally leaves at 09.00 and you can expect to be back in Marrakech at 17.00
⇒Embrace the culture, Architecture, and extraordinary landscapes that Morocco has to offer.

Departure by car from Marrakech around 9 in the morning for 2hour drive south up the Moulay Brahim Gorges, Asni weekly market every saturday then to Imlil (1740m), set in the upper level foothills of the Western High Atlas mountains, a main trailhead with streams and paths branching out in all directions.
Here we shall 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. towards the south to the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1843m), passing the hamlets of ait souka, Targa, and Imoula, up and down the stark slopes, the jagged Western High Atlas peaks of the Toubkal Massif before us – Jbels Aguelzim (3547m), Aksouâl (3847m) and the Adrar Adj (3122m) watching us all the way. We shall stop at Aroumd to visit this rather singular village in the Assif Aït Mizane Valley, built seemingly house upon house on a large moraine spur, overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables and always surrounded by almond and walnut trees.
We thence carry on for another Half an Hour to get to our lunch wish will be served among a berber familly in the village of Achayn prior to setting off back down the other side of the valley back to Imlil and our return trip to Marrakech.
