Best Imlil day trip from Marrakech
The Best Imlil day trip from Marrakech Starting at 09:00 from Marrakech to Imlil. Imlil is a small village in the High Atlas Mountains and is close to Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa and only about 1.5 hours drive away from Marrakesh. You can visit the Asni Berber market, walk up to the kasbah and explore the surrounding trails. Imlil is a pleasant destination to cool off from Marrakesh’s heat and dusty, bustling streets.October, when the whole valley smells of apples and clear skies and sunshine dominate, trekking is a particularly enjoyable way to spend a day. There are numerous places to stop for lunch or buy walnuts and apples for your day trek.
Imlil is connected to Asni and Ikkiss by road, and shared taxis and mini buses provide services to them both. Asni is the closest town to Imlil and is where the weekly Saturday market is held.
Imlil as a village is a relatively new creation. It was created to cater for the number of tourists pouring through en route to Toubkal. The original communities still exist in the valleys around Tamatert, Ait Souka, Tagadirt, Tacheddirt, Acheim, Taourirt n’Ait Mizane, Mzikene and Arhrene.
Before the advent of mountain tourism, the Imlil area was well known for its walnuts, apples and cherry production. While these are still important to the local economy, these have been eclipsed by tourism. Both mountain tourists and Moroccans come to Imlil seeking a cool relief from the heat of the Haouz.
we will back to Marrakech around 15:00 and we will be there at 16:30 so let’s discover Imlil with us.
