                            5 days Toubkal trek from Ourika valley

Trek description:
This 5-days trek includes Toubkal ascent and walks past several Berber villages with a more detailed view on one village chosen according to personal preference. Besides wonderful views from the Toubkal Mountain, the green Ourika valley (Setti Fadma village) with a river cutting it in half is another hidden gem of this walk. The trek continues up to Tacheddirt pass (3200 m) offering a view over the majority of the Atlas summits. The adjacent village of the same name lies in the heart of Imnane valley where most of the trekking routes start. It leads over the Tizi Mzik (2500 m) and Toubkal National park with the Tamsoult waterfalls. The hike up the highest North African peak is just a cherry on top and a nice ending to the whole trek.
