Day trip to Imlil
Day trip to Imlil – 140 km
Only 70 kilometers from Marrakech, Imlil is the last step before the ascent of Toubkal and the departure of many walks. Toubkal is the highest mountain peak in North Africa ascending at 4167 m / 13671 ft.
After crossing the gorge of Asni, a picturesque village known for its weekly souk on Saturday, the road continues along a green valley where the mountains and impressive natural bastions, play with colors.
In the village there are the old kasbahs overlooking the valley. Further down towards Moulay Brahim, the Kik plateau appears the gorgeous Lake Takerkoust, a special Sunday visit site for many Marrakchi families.
