This is not a classic day trip where you go for 30 minutes walk like most or all of the other people offer, enough to say that we are going to do 900m up starting from the altitude of 1740m. This popular day trek is ideal for trekkers who will be attempting to climb Mount Toubkal. We grade it as a 'moderate' day trek due to its almost 900m of ascent and descent and approx. 6 hours of walking. It offers many great views of both the Imlil and Imnane Valleys from several points in route. I will come and pick you up from your Hotel in Marrakech at 8:00 am. Then, we drive towards the High Atlas mountains which are very close to Marrakech city. We will make frequent stops along the way. After that, we will keep driving towards Imlil valley 1 740m. From the center of Imlil 1740m, we first head up the Tamatert Valley to the Tizi n'Tamatert pass (2,280m) via the Berber villages of Ait Souka and Tamatert. From the pass, we head into the Moroccan pine forest and pick up a trail that leads to the summit of Adrar Talamrout. Reaching the summit of Adrar Talamrout (2,600m) there's time to marvel at the view of the Imenane Valley and the Berber villages of Amskere and Ikkiss before we begin our descent back to Imlil. We'll enjoy a lunch break on our way down. After then, We drive back to Marrakech.
