Day 1: Marrakech- Asni- Imioughlad – the col of Tacht – Tiziane (1950m)
The departure would be around 8am towards the village of Imioughlad, through a not very maintained road, where we’ll meet our team of muleteers. We have only a few minutes to get prepared, by putting on sunscreen and filling the water bottles, because during the first two hours of walking, we won’t come across any water. After crossing the village of Imioughlad, we’ll start climbing gently towards the col of Tacht (2000m). The first stop allows us to enjoy a superb view of the village. The path crosses a forest of red juniper trees and holm oaks. We’ll go all the way down to river to have lunch. After an hour of descending, we’ll reach the village of Tiziane, located in a valley with multicolored land. Night at the local’s lodging. 1h30 drive. 5 hours of walking.

A beautiful leg awaits us, with a similar altitude difference; the landscape is even more breathtaking. We’ll begin to climb in the shade of gigantic walnut trees, then the sun will warm us before arriving to the col. At the Tiziane fold, it’s always better to purify the water taken at the springs or in the rivers before drinking it. Because it’s likely to disturb the digestive system that’s unaccustomed to spring water. We’ll cross a forest of thuriferous junipers before reaching the col of Teouti at 2400m above sea level. We’ll go down to Assaka where we’ll have lunch, then continue to Tizgui, an exceptional village with beautiful architecture. Night at a local’s lodging. 5:30 walk.
