    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.
