Day 1 Marrakesh - Imlil
Pick up from your hotel in Marrakesh and transfer to the little village of Imlil where you will start your trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, we first pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. We then continue east and by crossing the flood plains our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and ends at Toukbal Refuge (3206m), our stop for the night. Approx. 4 to 5hrs walking. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included.
