Vallée d’Asni & vallée d’Imlil
Asni: 52 km, after having crossed the gorges in Moulay Brahim, one reaches Asni, tucked among the olive and almond trees at the foot of djebel Toubkal (4167 m), the highest peak in North Africa.
Imlil: 17 km from Asni, this remote village, located at the bottom end of a superb gorge planted with almond trees, is accessible via a road that is usually negotiable depending on the time of the year. Imlil is the departure point for lovely hikes to discover the national park and high plateaus of Toubkal. Hikes, 1-2 hours trip on mule back from Imlil; it’s a good idea to hire a guide to accompany you.
Kik plateau & Lalla Takerkoust Dam:
After Asni, veer left toward Moulay Brahim.
Moulay Brahim Village: as the road climbs for 6 km from Asni, this charming little village offers a beautiful panorama over the Haouz plains and High Atlas.
Kik plateau: after Moulay Brahim, vegetation becomes more and sparser in summer, with rocks predominating at the top. After Taddart village, a very beautiful panorama over Lalla Takerkoust Dam, this 7 km log dam, is very busy on the weekends. You’ll find charming restaurants and guesthouses alongside the lakeshore.
