Imlil day trip from marrakech

25€ per person

Imlil is the region of the Haouz (The surroundings of Marrakech), which marks the beginning of the Toubkal National Park. Its chief town is a small eponymous village of a few hundred inhabitants. Imlil is known for being a 100% Berber territory, and therefore you can see its traditions and way of life still authentically Berber, with very rare Arab influences.

For example, each year, the feast of sacrifice is immediately followed by the rite of Boujloud. In which a carnivalesque character adorns himself with the skin of a sacrificed beast and makes the tour of the village by frightening and distracting the children. This tradition, still very much alive in these regions, has disappeared elsewhere.

Imlil day trip : the antechamber of gigantism

The gigantism of the rocky and steep peaks that mark out the hiking tour that we propose you to do in the most amazing recesses of the Toubkal National Park. And for the more adventurous among you, the Toubkal itself offers itself to your desire to take up if you up to the challenge. At this level, we are no longer talking about hiking, but climbing on the side of the highest peak in North Africa. The equipment as well as the supervision of rigor, will be available at the beginning of the ascent. To guarantee you optimal comfort and safety. As you get closer to the top of the mountain, the air becomes less dense, and breathing in such circumstances requires a specially prepared physical condition. That’s why, we anticipate, the availability of oxygen bottles, to provide the missing supply.
