3 Valleys & Berber Villages - 4 day:
Spend 4 days exploring the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains on foot. A hike amidst cool vegetation of juniper and pine trees is a perfect way to rejuvenate your mind and body. Go across deep gorges, gushing river streams and groves of cherry and walnut trees, as your guide takes you on a great walk up and down the beautiful hills.
The valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages of the ethnic Berbers, a herding and farming community. Visit their homes and interact with them to know more about their traditions and customs. See their terraced fields of corn and barley and get a glimpse of their day to day living.
Day 1 : Imlil – Tizi n’Tamaterte – Tachdirt
The first day of the Berber Village Experience Trek can be up to 6 hours long. The starting point is Imlil and you will start by heading toward the Imnan Valley, eventually arriving at Tizi N’tamater at 2300m, to have lunch, before you pick up the trail again to get to Tachdirt, where you can spend the night in a guest house.
Day 2 : Tachdirt - Imsker
Setting off in the morning from Tachdirt, you and your group will head to the red village at Imsker, passing many other settlements on your way through the Imnan Valley. The night will be spent in gites (a French term for houses owned by the locals) and the major portion of day should be about 5-6 hours trekking.
Day 3 : Imsker - Tizi Oussem via Tizi n' Libour Pass
6-7 hours of trekking through the mountains will take you across the Imlil Valley and all the way up the Tizi N’Tacht (2100m) from where you will see the amazing Azzaden Valley. Here you will have lunch, followed by continuing your trek toward Tizi Oussem where you will spend the night in gites. Tizi Oussem also has hamam, a local variety of steam bath which you can use if you like.
Day 4 : Tizi Oussem - Imlil
On the final day, your trek will last around 5-6 hours. You will head toward Imlil via the largest most beautiful waterfall in the region, before meeting your supply mule in Tizi Mizzik at 2500m. After lunch, you will trek down to the Imlil where your journey will end.
