Once you have loaded up the mules, you will begin your trek, which starts with a fairly stiff climb out of the Imlil valley, up to the Tizi n Mzik pass (2,489m), which offers dramatic mountain views. From here, the trail descends down into the spectacular Azzadene valley, known locally as the valley of color. You will pass the summer village of Azib n’Tansoult and the pretty D’Ighouliden waterfalls, which flow year round before continuing to the Lepiney mountain refuge (3,000m) where you will be spending the night.

After taking in the scenery you’ll begin a descent to the Toubkal Mountain Refuge (Neltner Hut) at 3,200m.
