Imlil day tour from Marrakech:
Day Trip from Marrakech to Imlil and the National Park of Toubkal
Departure by car from Marrakech around 9 in the morning for 2 hours' drive south up the Moulay Brahim Gorges, Asni weekly market every saturday, then to Imlil (1,740m), 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 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. towards the south to the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1,843m), 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 (3,547m), Aksouâl (3,847m) and the Adrar Adj (3,122m) watching us all the way.
There will be a 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. 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 Achayn. After lunch you set off back down the other side of the valley back to Imlil and the return trip to Marrakech.
