Following the ancient Berber trails, traverse winding dirt tracks, passing earthen Berber houses, you will enjoy the scenery of High Atlas. There will be numerous photo stops along the way to capture the beauty of the snow-capped Mt Toubkal (4160 m), the highest peak of North Africa.

Before arriving at Imlil, you will have a short stop at the Argan Oil Co-operative where women turn the Argan nut into Argan Oil-based products. 

At Imlil, you will cross the ancient irrigated barley, corn, and vegetable terrace fields, surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. The local Berber guide will explain about the Berber culture and heritage.

After lunch, you will have an easy hike through Imlil to the waterfall, passing beautiful valleys and views. The trekking is not complicated, suitable for all ages travellers. Instead of trekking, you can also rest in the Berber home and relax with a Moroccan tea and majestic High Atlas mountain view.
