DAY 1 / MARRAKECH/ ASNI / IMI OUGHLAD/ TIZI N’TACHT / ID AISSA
Departure to Imi Oughlad.. Having crossed Asni, we arrive at Imi Oughlad (1357 m), start of our trek to the Tizi n’Tacht (2000m), where we shall stop for our picnic. After a relaxing break at the summit we will then set off for a slow hike of about three hours southwest down along mule tracks to the red clay village of Id Aissa Picnic during the trek. After a rest, we shall start the short descent to Tizi Oussem (1850m)
Overnight and diner in a local house – Approx 04h30 walking
DAY 2: ID AISSA / AZIB TAMSOULT
After breakfast we will set off on an interesting three hour hike up along the Assif n’Ouissedene Valley, passing through almond groves and several Berber villages, through Id Aissa on to the hamlet of Tissi Oussem (1800m) and the Âazib Tamsoult (2250m), where we’ll stop for our picnic. From here we recommend you hike a little further (approx. 1 hour) to the Tamsoult Cascade (2204m) before returning down to the Âazib Tamsoult and then climbing a short) switchback path up to the Âazib Tizikert to save some of the altitude gain on day 3. It is at this tranquil, elevated spot that we stop for dinner and overnight camping above the Assif n’Ouarzane Valley.
Overnight and diner in a camp – Approx 03h walking
DAY 03: AZIB TAMSOULT/AGUELZIM PASS/ REFUGE
After breakfast, we set out eastwards on a moderately difficult hike up winding mule tracks to the Tizi Aguelzim (3,550m), thence a further 3 hours south-east to the Refuge which marks the spring snowline at 3,207m, where we shall have our dinner in a refuge.
Overnight and diner in the refuge – Approx 05 h30
DAY 04: REFUGE / ASCENSION SOMMET TOUBKAL / AREMD / IMLIL / MARRAKECH
Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. When you reach the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech
