Atlas Mountains and Berber Villages Day Trip from Marrakech
From US$46.00
Overview
Explore the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains on a full-day trip to the Imlil Valley, Ait Souka, Azroul waterfalls, and Taourirt. Visiting Berber homes to eat lunch and drink tea gives this day a more personal feel than traditional tours, with time to ride a camel, hike, and ride a mule to a Berber community high in the mountains.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Marrakech and then travel into the Atlas Mountains via Moulay Brahim Gorges, where you’ll pause by a riverside trailhead for a scenic camel ride.

Next, continue into the beautiful Imlil Valley, stopping in a Berber village for a traditional welcome: a glass of mint tea. From there, ride a mule 1.9 miles (3 kilometers) to the highest village in the Imlil Valley, with spectacular views along the way.

To get to the Berber village of Ait Souka, you’ll hike for roughly two hours, passing a series of small communities and stopping for lunch in a Berber home that overlooks terraced fields. After visiting the Azroul waterfalls, head back to the vehicle for the return trip to Marrakech, where this tour concludes.

I wore leggings even though it was hot, not sure on temperatures for this time of year, but it will get cooler in the mountains... Enjoy...

The camels looked to be in good health, they are kept at the side of the road but the trail you take is away from the main road, I didn't see water for the camels however they ships of the desert and can go days without.
