Day Trip to Ouirgane Valley - 1 Days

Ouirgane Valley

Situated at about fifty kilometers from Marrakesh, Ouirgane is perched in 1000m of height in a surprising greenery.

It is an ideal place for the nature lovers who wish to walk few hours far from the too tourist places. Very nice trip to a valley typical of the High Atlas. Asni is located almost at the foot of Mount Toubkal, the highest point of North Africa at 4160 meters. In the valley is a succession of traditional Berber villages.

Optionally, it is possible to continue until the TIN MEL mosque at the bottom of the valley. Built in the early twelfth century. It is being restored and progress can already admire the architecture and unparalleled elegance.

For Atlas Trekking you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.

Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days.
