Hiking in the Atlas Mountains
Start your hike with a welcome glass of mint tea in the village of Imlil and meet your local guide to give you an idea about the walk. You will then travel south to the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1843m), where you have a nice view of the Western High Atlas peaks of the Toubkal Massif, passing the hamlets of Targa Imoula and up and down the stark slopes. 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. Then continue to trek for half an hour to get to your lunch or picnic in Aït Souka village, which will be served among a Berber family in the village of Achayn. Finally, end your trek down the other side of the valley back to Imlil and return trip to your hotel or Marrakech.
