Berber villages Trek 2 Day

1. day in the Toubkal National Park

The trek starts in the Azzaden valley in Tassa Ouirgane, a small berber village on 1300m, where the muleteers are already waiting for us with their animals. We enter the Toubkal National Park just behind Tassa Ouirgane, and then pass by huge gardens, cultivated on terraces, walnut trees and ochre houses.
After having refreshed ourselves with an lunch picnic, we ascend Tizi Oussem at 1900m. This is today’s destination and we have time to look around in the village before having dinner and spending the night in a berber house or refuge.

2. day in the Toubkal National Park

After having enjoyed a berber breakfast with local bread and olive oil we start again and walk thru fragrant juniper forests to the Tizi Mzik at 1889m. From here we descend to Imlil at 1700m, our final destination of this trek. Imlil is the biggest village in the Ait Mizane Valley and a main base base for trekking in the Toubkal area.

I worked as a tourist Driver, waiter & cook laboratory operator, cosmetic and alimentary products distributor ... for certain time, but being away from guiding made me realize how much I loved teaching clients about my land, my people and life. I started getting into technical mountaineering trips. Since then, I’ve never looked back. Guiding means providing a safe, rewarding experience for my clients, so you’ve gotta enjoy interacting with new people. Really, I’m a learning teacher.” How to Gain Experience: “Most guides I know work for companies so they don’t have to worry about attracting clients or getting public land permits and insurance. In morocco, independent guides have a tough time with those three things, especially in the beginning. start at a company and gain skills, connections, and a reputation. that's what allow me to branch out.
