This popular day trek is ideal for trekkers who will be attempting to climb Mount Toubkal. We grade it as a 'moderate' day trek due to its almost 1,000m of ascent and descent and approx. 6 hours of walking. It offers many great views of both the Imlil and Imenane Valleys from several points en route. 


From Dar Assarou we first head up the Tamatert Valley to the Tizi n'Tamatert pass (2,280m) via the Berber villages of Ait Souka and Tamatert. At the pass there is a stone shelter with refreshments on sale (seasonal). From the pass we head into Moroccan pine forest and pick up a trail that leads to the summit of Adrar Tamalaroute. Reaching the summit of Adrar Tanalaroute (2,724m) there's time to marvel at the view of the Imenane Valley and the Berber villages of Imska, Amskere and Ikkiss before we begin our descent back to Imlil. We'll enjoy a picnic lunch break on our way down.
