Trip Info

This challenging trekking guided tour makes a big loop across the several valleys surrounding the region’s highest mountains. The snow-capped High Atlas peaks contrasting with the vivid blue sky perfectly compliment another highlight of the walk – the blue waters of Lake D’Ifni.


Day 1: Marrakech – Imlil – Tacheddirt

We leave Marrakech after breakfast and drive to Imlil via Asni. Imlil is the principal trailhead for walkers, and a busy market town. There is a constant movement of people coming down from the mountains, and an equal supply of activity from those about to embark on their adventure. We meet our mule team and once all our gear is loaded we begin walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt, some 8kms beyond Imlil. Soon the trail begins to rise as we climb up to the pass at Tizi n’Tamatert (2,279m). We then descend to the pretty village of Ouaneskra and continue, for a further half-hour or so, to Tacheddirt (3,000m), where we generally camp near the river. Meals included: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, 1 dinner.

Day 2: Tacheddirt – Azib Likemt

Crossing the valley we begin a long, slow ascent to the pass at Tizi Likemt (3,555m). The going is quite tough as there is a considerable amount of loose scree on the ground. At the top we enjoy our first fine view of the Toubkal massif before a long downhill descent to the village of Azib Likemt, where we camp for the night.

Day 3: Azib Likemt – Tizi n’Ourai – Amsouzert

This long, but relatively easy, day takes us through a variety of contrasting landscapes. From Tizi n’Ououraine (3,120m) we enjoy further views of the Toubkal massif, including the summit, the east face and the Ifni Dome (3,876m). The trail leads on towards Amsouzert, one of the most striking villages in the region, where we spend the night – dormitory-style – in a simple village Gite.

Day 4: Amsouzert – Ifni Lake

West of Amsouzert are several small villages, which we explore as we make our way towards Ifni Lake, the only lake in the massif. It is a memorable sight, surrounded by rocky mountains and giant heaps of rubble, and is unusually deep. We expect to arrive by lunchtime and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore. We camp tonight in this area.

Day 5: Ifni Lake – Neltner Hut

By now we should be both fit and acclimatized, and ready to tackle the hardest day of the trek. We make our way along a steep path that leads up a seemingly endless scree slope. At length we reach the pass at Tizi n’Ouanoums (3,664m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock. From here it is a long zigzag descent to Nelter Hut, a mountain refuge where we spend the night (or alternatively camp outside).

Day 6: Mt Toubkal Summit – Imlil

We leave before dawn, following a well-worn route to the summit. If conditions are good it should take no more than 2-3 hours to reach the summit, where we enjoy expansive views of the entire Atlas range and the Marrakech plains beyond. Returning to base, we then descend fairly rapidly to the villages of Sidi Chamharouch and Aremd, before following the Mizane River, along a well-forested trail, to the trail head at Imlil. If you are staying in Marrakech, you will be taken there by car at the end of the day.

We look forward to guiding you!

    “Fantastic trekking in Jebel Saghro” 5 of 5 starsReviewed January 11, 2015 Our 4 day trek though the jebel Saghro mountains was really wonderful and very well organised by Pathfinder treks! It was definitely the highlight from our trip! Our guide Mohammed Ibrahim was really nice and a good guide. Everything was very well organised and adjusted to our travel program. Actually everything was perfect, from the length of the walks each day, the food, the beautiful views of the mountains and nice company. We would really recommend pathfinder treks for everyone who wants to have a really nice trekking in Morocco. Thankyou Rashid and Michaela for arranging it!! Visited January 2015
