Here you will start your journey on foot for about 4km up to the Berber village of Aroumd and the hamlets of Taourirt, Targa, and Imoula. You shall stop at Aroumd to visit this rather singular village in the Assif Aït Mizane Valley. Proceed a further distance of 8 km to the village of Sidi Chamharouch.
You will then take a break to enjoy a picnic lunch in a spot from where you can get an excellent view of the mighty Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak in the Maghreb.

After an early breakfast, set out to witness a spectacular sunrise. It is a 3 hour steep climb up to the the highest peak in the Maghreb (4167m) and enjoy the spectacular views from there.
Having spent some time at the top, start your descent along the South Cirque back to the Toubkal Refuge for a picnic. Then set off towards the north along steeply descending, zigzagging trails on the higher slopes of the Valley of the Assif n’lsouhouanem n’Ouagounss towards the Berber village of Sidi Chamharouch (3106m).
Before entering the village, notice a tree, sacred to the local Berbers. Then descend down zigzagging trails around granite and basalt grey rocks for about 8km to a remarkable village of Aroumd, commanding one of the more fertile valleys of the High Atlas mountains with terraced, irrigated plots and fields of maize, onions and fruit trees on all sides.
Stop for a picnic prior to continuing on along the floor of the valley to the Berber village of Imlil. Enjoy mint tea in the home of senior guide Mohammed Aït Idar.
You will then set out in your private vehicle for the return journey to Marrakech.
