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.
