Day trip to Imlil

Imlil is the Atlas Mountains most well-known and scenic villages. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to reach the village from Marrakech. It is worth stopping in Asni en route. Furthermore, this is especially worthwhile if it is a Saturday and the weekend market is happening. We suggest a leisurely three-hour day trek through small Berber villages close to Imlil through verdant green fields. Start by walking to the village of Aroumd, where you will stop for a refreshing glass of mint tea in a local home. You then walk down the Mizane Valley, offering spectacular views over Mount Toubkal. You then reach Imlil and explore the town before returning to Marrakech.
