This 6 day trek takes you to 3 Berber valleys each with a different landscape, flora and fauna. It also takes you through many of the mountain villages. The ultimate icing on the cake is the Toubkal summit trek on the second to last day. You will be well and truly fit by then and de-stressed form your daily routine. These mountains in the High Atlas are full of panoramic surprises as you trek between the valleys and meet the friendly, warm locals. You can get a sense of the community spirit here too and perhaps enjoy some local music or witness a wedding. Whatever you see or feel, you will remember for a long time to come. On the last day you can choose to stay the night in Aremd, Imlil or be driven to Marrakech. If you are continuing your tour with a trip to the Sahara then we will advise the itinerary.



Marrakech – Ouirgane valley – Tikhfiste – Assif Zerkzoun village

You will be picked up in Marrakech and transferred to the Ouirgane Valley by our team. You will meet the mule team there and pack up for the adventure. Trek from Ouirgane Valley through juniper and cork oak forests to the village of Tikhfiste. The view will be exceptional as a panoramic vista opens up of the two lake of Ouirgane and Lalla Takerkoust and the Kik Plateau. Lunch will be in the forest overlooking Ijoukak Valley and villages. After lunch and a rest, the trek will continue with the junipers being replaced by more sparse vegetation. Walk along a dirt trail will take you to the village of Assif Zerkzoun where we will spend the night in a local guesthouse. 6 – 7 hour walk.

Assif Zerkzoun – Dkent valley – Tizgui village

After breakfast we start the trek to Dkent valley. The landscape changes as geological changes over millennia become evident; greens become reds and yellows and the mountains become more deforested. Lunch at the halfway point will be near a picturesque stream before we reach the remote rural village of Tizgui in the Dkent Valley. Overnight in a local guesthouse. 6 – 7 hour walk.



Tizgui Village – Tizi n´Tougdalt – Tizi Oussem

After breakfast there will be a steep ascent followed by an easy descent down to the Azzaden Valley through juniper forests. A well needed lunch will be waiting for us near the stream of Azib n´Arrou before we continue to the Azzaden River. Overnight will be in a local gite in Tizi Oussem; a traditional mountain village on the right side of the river.
