Two days spent completing the Imnane and Imlil Valleys trek in the high peaks of the Atlas Mountains are a perfect combination of an introduction to trekking and traditional Berber culture.
The Imlil and Imnane Valleys are home to tiny hamlets and villages of the ethnic Berbers, a herding and farming community. You can visit their homes and have the chance to drink mint tea with them and learn more about their traditions and customs. You will be able to see their terraced fields of corn and barley and get a glimpse of their day to day living.
At every point of your trek you will be rewarded with great views of the Atlas Mountains and Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa.
In the morning you will meet your speaking English Berber mountain guide and driver, a,d then head to Imlil village in High Atlas mountain. On the arrival you will meet the work team of muleteers and cook and start hiking uphill winding mule tracks to the Tizi n’ Tamatert pass (2300m). Enjoy the beautiful sceneries of Atlas Mountain peaks. We will have our picnic lunch on the Tizi ‘n Tamatert pass. After lunch we set off following the path to Imnane Valley.
