Journey to Tassa Ouirgane (1,500m) in the Ouirgane Valley, where we begin our trek to Tiziane (1,800m). Our route takes us through the juniper and redwood forests of the Tassa National Park and along the beautiful red-soiled Azzadene Valley. As we pass out from the forests there are stunning views of the surrounding mountains and we encounter small isolated hamlets and villages.
Our path takes us out of the Azzadene Valley and up to the pass of Tizi ‘n Touati, from where there is a majestic panorama of the High Atlas range. We then descend through a forest of oaks and past villages with stonewalled sheep pens. Overnight camping near Tizgui at Azib Assoul (2,300m).
We cross the Tizi ‘n Tagoudalte pass (2,700m) from where we have views of the western High Atlas mountain range. We then have a long descent through alpine areas overgrown with wild flowers and herbs, and follow a river past terraced fields and groves of walnut trees, to the village of Tizi Oussem (1,900m). Free afternoon to relax or explore the village. Overnight in a gite.
Trek to a small waterfall at Azib Tamsoulte and return to cross the Tizi ‘n Mzik pass (2,500m). We join the main Toubkal valley at Aremd (1,900m), where we spend the night in a village gite.
Today we gradually ascend the Toubkal valley, via the pilgrimage hamlet of Sidi Chamarouch, to the Toubkal Refuge (3,200m). We camp at the foot of Toubkal Mountain.
An early start for the challenging trek to the summit of Toubkal Mountain,the highest mountain in North Africa at 4,167m. We return to our base camp near the refuge for the night.
Our trek ends with an easy descent through the village of Sidi Chamarouch to Imlil. We bid our guide and muleteers a fond farewell and drive to Marrakech, where the remainder of the day is free.
