trek description

This 3 day trek in the High Atlas Mountains takes you into several remote valleys where Berber villages nestle on terraced mountainsides. It is a fabulous experience with many opportunities to discover the local people and their lifestyle. Parts of the trek are challenging so a certain level of fitness is required. The second day includes several long ascents and descents with far reaching views across the mountains and into valleys. Your transport will bring you from Marrakech to the mountain village of Imi Oughlad where you will meet your guides and pack up the mules with your gear.
