3 day Atlas Mountains Trek itinerary:
On day one:
you will be picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech city. When you arrive to Imi Oughlad (1,450m), where you will meet your Berber guide and muleteer, you will exit the car and walk up the road towards Imlil. The Ouirgane National Park will offer a simpler acclimatization trip on your first day there. Here, the landscape is more gradual, with juniper trees and soil that is copper green. Spend the night in a gite in the tiny, rural Berber village of Tinzert. 4 hours or so of walking.
The next day:
you’ll leave the valley after breakfast and go to the breathtaking Azzaden Valley. Views of Toubkal
and her sister peaks at the head of the Valley begin with a roaring mountain stream flanked by luscious walnut forests. Spend the night in an Ait Aissa village Gite. 5 to 6 hours of walking.
On the last day:
the ascent out of the Azzadene Valley today is amazing. Before descending into Imlil, you will ascend the valley in the direction of Tizi Oussem, from which point you will ascend to the pass at Tizi n Mzik (2489m). You’ll be transferred back to Marrakech after eating lunch at Imlil, giving you plenty of time to spend the evening exploring the city. 4-5 hours of walking roughly. That’s the end of our nice 3 day atlas mountain trek.
