Ourika to imlil Trek

Ourika to imlil Trek of 3 Days  Regardless its relative proximity, each of the valleys differ the other. Due to the subsoil consisting of minerals and different compounds, they are of significant colours and soil, which subsequently affect the character of the human dwellings. An amazing trek across the two Berber valleys of the High Atlas Mountains leads from Imlil to Setti Fadma via Tizi n’Tacheddirt (3600m) and Ourika valley. The altitude allows for great panoramic views over the Toubkal National Park. The second part of the trek will be marked with a color change. Walking along the ancient houses made of mud and stones catching the glimpse of moments from the lives of locals will be altered with crossing the juniper field-like plains. The valleys are linked by gorges and constant proves of human presence shaping the environment – terraced fields with vegetable, walnut trees and apple orchards belonging to every village. With a bit of luck, in the Setti Fadma region you can come across monkeys, which are currently on the verge of extinction. Trek Itinerary: Day 1: Imlil (1740 m) – Imenane valley(2400 m – 1350 m) – Tizi n’Tamatert (2279 m) – Ouaneskra village in the valley Read more
