On the west side of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in Morocco lie the tributary valleys above the River Nfis, described as the most attractive and fertile in the High Atlas and home of the welcoming Berber. Traversing these foothills from the south, this relaxed paced 5-day trekking holiday crosses several 2000 metre passes taking us to the traditional mountain villages of Amslam and Tisgui, surrounded by terraced fields and groves of almonds and figs. Upon reaching the delightful Azaden Valley, reckoned to be the most beautiful in the region because of it's watermills and traditional houses, we camp at Tizi Oussem. From here we'll visit the waterfalls at Irgholiden before climbing through juniper woodland to cross the Tizi n'Zik where we're rewarded with stunning mountain views. After a final night at our gite in Ait Souka, we return to Marrakech with time to explore this magical city. A perfect introduction to the delights of trekking and Moroccan hospitality!
