Detail about the package

Atlas Mountains Hike Imlil To Ourika

An amazing 3 Days Atlas Mountains Trek ( imlil to ourika valley) 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
