Day 1. Marrakech - Imlil countryside- camp of Toubkal
Pick up from Marrakech towards the craggy peaks and plunging valleys of the Toubkal Massif. We pass through the tiny town of Asni, towards the foothills of the Massif. We begin our trek, heading along the Mizane Valley, first towards the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. Aremd is the largest village in the valley and provides an interesting mix of traditional terraced farming, gites and streets that seem to be permanently gridlocked by goats and cattle. The trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toukbal Refuge for the night.
Day 2 camp - Toubkal Summit – Imlil
Early this morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts, however, the views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. Retracing our steps we then return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil.
Day 3 : Imlil - Dades Valley
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Imlil at 9.00 am and head out over the Atlas Mountains, driving over the stunning Tizi-n- Tichka pass. You’ll pass through lots of Berber villages, and once you’re in the desert, you’ll see riverside oases and barren hillsides dotted with kasbahs (fortified dwellings that house families and their livestock). Along the way, you will have the option either to take a break and visit the Ouarzazate Film Studios . VisitAit Benhaddou - an ancient fortified city containing countless kasbahs famous for Hollywood movies (The Mummy, Gladiator) We reach Dades Gorge for overnight stay with dinner.
Day 4 : Dades Valley - Todra gorge - Merzouga
Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer from the Dades Valley to Todra Gorge - a massive fault dividing the High Atlas mountains, rising up 300 metres in a narrow valley with palmeries and Berber villages. We’ll head into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga where you enjoy camel ride during sunset time. We’ll trek for an hour-and- a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy dinner.
Day 5 : Merzouga desert – Marrakech
Wake up early , just prior to sunrise, we have a 1h 30min camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and we head back to Merzouga on our Camels. When we reach Merzouga, have breakfast ; have the opportunity to shower and then we begin our journey through the stony desert and over the Atlas mountains, with plenty of stops for photos, exploring and lunch as we return to Marrakech.
