Imlil to Setti fatma Treks - 3 days 2 nights.

Day 1: Imlil, Tizi n Tamatere (2279m), Ouanskra, Tachdirth:

From Imlil , we set out along a piste for a 1 hour and 45 minutes hike towards the east up to the Tizi nï Tamaterte (2279m) and on through fields of Barley and orchards of Walnuts , Apple and Cherry treees until we reach the village of Tamaterte.

Once through the village we shall take a path which leads us up though pine and juniper woods and we stop at the tizi to admire the Imlil and Imnane valleys. The latter has many berber villages tucked precariously onto the slopes stretching around us .

We carry on along the upper valley slopes for another hour or so to the villages of Ouanskra and then Amagdoul set amidst terraced plots of land carved from the hard slopes where we shall stop for our field picnic on the plateau which is used in summer, as a favoured bivouac site .

Our afternoon will be spent hiking for some 2 hours up through the valley along the mule trails untill we reach the pretty and the oldest berber in the toubkal massif (Tachdirth 2291m). This is set amongst terraced plots clawed from the surrounding craggy slopes, where we will overnight in gite dï etape.


Day 2: Tachdirth, iaabbassen, timichi

After an early breakfast, we start our 6 hours hike south-eastwards to the terraced village of timichi (1850m), at the western offshoot head of ourika valley .

For 2and half hours we hike slowly up to the tizi n tachdirth (3200m), which affords us a stunning panoramic view of jbel Aksoual (3842m) and Bouignouane (3882m) on one side and Angour on the other , with the beginning of the luscious nature of beautiful , Verdant valley streching out way below us .

We shall traverse the pass and continue on down through the rocks north-eastwards for a further 2 hours until we reach the berber village of Iaabbassen (2030m), where we will stop for our welcome field picnic next to a spring just outside of the village.

The afternoon we take a 2 hours hike up futher to the northeast down the valley to the old village of timichi , a charming terraced piste conglomeration of homes set amongst ancient nut trees , where we will have our dinner and overnight in a berber family home.

Day 3: Timichi, tiwerdiwe, Tadrarte, Agadir nï, Ait Boulmane, Setti Fatma
