Itinerary:
Your itinerary will be:

DAY 1: Marrakech – Imioughlad – Tiziane village.
Departure from Marrakech for a pleasant drive south way up through the Tizi n'Techt to arrive at the higher foothills of the Western High Atlas mountains at our trailhead of Imi Ourhlad. Here we alight from our vehicle and meet up with our Berber muleteer crew, always a fun part of any of our treks. We set off up in a northwesterly direction for a 2hour acclimatisation hike up switchback mule tracks to the Tizi n'Tacht (2000m), where we shall stop for a picnic and admire the surrounding valleys and peaks. Thence a slow hike for about 3 hours southwest down along mule tracks to the red clay village of Tizziane (1700m).

Breakfast over and camp struck, we set out for today’s 5 hour hike further towards the south, up goat trails and stark winding slopes to traverse the Tizi n’Taghoudalalte (2700m), where we’ll stop to take in some impressive vistas of mountains and valleys, to descend amidst the juniper trees to our picnic site by a small stream, surrounded by an almost alpine atmosphere of mountains, wild flowers, poppies, a multitude of herbs and terraced fields. From here we set off down to the head of the Valley of the n’Aït Ouissa’dane, crossing the river to hike alongside irrigation ditches and small mills towards the last village in this valley- Tizi Oussem (1850m), where we will spend a night.
