berber village life experience

Trek Details

Berber village life experience: 4-day hike in the high Atlas mountain to experience the real Berber village life and get to know the way of life. The hike starts in the stunning Imnane valley known for the small villages carved into the side of the hills. During this hike, you will enjoy mint tea with the locals and stay in a traditional Berber homestay.

The Berber people are significant because they are ancient people before the arrival of Arabs and Islam. The magnificent yet dangerous environment shapes the lifestyle they live in. The diet of the Berber people has to keep them healthy enough to deal with living on a mountain, consisting mainly of bread, soups, and barley products in general. Many houses in villages were built of clay by Berbers, a combination of stone and mud. Berber wedding festivals last a week, and villagers are invited from all around the celebration area.

Duration: 4 days

Period:  All year round

Trek Grade: Easy to Medium

Maximum Elevation: 2500 Meters

Accommodation: Gite (Guesthouse)

Berber village life experience allows you to:

  •  Discover traditional Berber life in the High Atlas Mountains

Itinerary of Berber village life experience

Day 1Imlil, Tizi n'Tamaterte, and Techdirt

On the first day of the Berber village experience trip, we will trek for nearly 6 hours a day. We will start at Imlil and head towards the Imnane Valley, where we will arrive at Tizi N’tamaterte (2,300m) for lunch. From there, we hit the trail again on the way to Techdirt where we will spend the evening in a guest house.

Day 2Techdirt and Imsker

In the morning, we head off from Techdirt and go towards the red village at Imsker while passing through many smaller settlements in the Imnane Valley. At night we will rest in gites (French for locally-owned houses) after the extended 5-6 hour trek for the day.

Day 3Imsker, Tizi Oussem via Tizi N'Libour Pass

Another 6-7 trek through the mountains will have you crossing the Imlil Valley and heading up to Tizi N’Tacht (2,100m). Tizi N’libour is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch while taking in the beauty of the Azzenden Valley. The trek then continues towards Tizi Oussem, where we will rest in Gite again. Tizi Oussem also has a hammam you can try out, like a type of steam bath that the locals use.

Day 4Tizi Oussem and Imlil

The final day consists of another 5-6 hour trek. We will head towards Imlil and encounter a massive, breathtaking waterfall, and meet up with the supply mule in Tizi Mizik (2,500m). After lunch, it’s time to head back to Imlil, where the Berber village life experience trek will end.
