we will set off at 9 o’clock from Marrakech. Your mountain guide will meet you in the house to start walking in Toubkal National Park in Toubkal Valley with good views of Adj Mountain (3100m) and Aglzim Mountain (3900m) in front of the highest mountain in North Africa: Mount Toubkal (4167m). We will walk through green fields with apple, walnut, and cherry trees to Sidi Chamarouch (2315m). Sidi Chamarouch is a shrine to a holy man who lived in the Atlas. Besides people climbing and trekking in the Atlas, there are also pilgrims coming here to Sidi Chamharouch and its marabout shrine, most likely with its origin dating back to before Islam. Here you will have your lunch by the river and big water fall with your chef cooking and you sitting on a Berber carpet. After lunch you can take more pictures of the shrine from outside because there is one bridge you cannot cross unless you are Muslim. After this visit then we will head back to armed village (05 hours).
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.

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.
