Day trip to the beautiful village of Imlil is in the heart of the Atlas Mountains at the base of the highest peak in North Africa in Mount Toubkal National Park. The terrain that surrounds this peaceful village is a rich contrast from that of the country’s lowlands. Here, pink houses are spaced unevenly through the village with numerous trees – mostly walnut – interspersed around them.
Departing from Marrakech, we take the tarred road towards Imlil. Small villages follow each other in a vast landscape planted with olive trees, separated by a natural border made of prickly pear cactuses.
