From here you get fine views of the upper Imenane valley, and the mountains of Oukaimeden (3262 metres), Angour (3614 metres) and Iguenouane (3882 metres). After a short rest at the col we descend more steeply into the fertile Mizane Valley and the large village of Imlil.

Day 4 - Aroumd - Tizi M’Zik - Azaden Valley - Azib Tamsoult
We set off today towards Tamsoult. Our track takes us through an amazing couloir of stunning red and bluish rocks until we reach the Tizi M’Zik (2664m) where we will get views of the Jbel Oukaďmeden range, the high plateau of Tazaghârt and of the beginning of the renowned Valley of the Assif Aďt n’Ouissedene with its numerous palmerias.

The climb to the summit of Toubkal takes around four hours from the Mouflons Refuge. Nowhere on the climb are there any technical difficulties, but it is a long and tiring ascent.

Trip Notes

Morocco is a Muslim country and therefore follows Islamic laws and customs. Any sexual relations outside of marriage are punishable by law regardless of whom they are with. Homosexuality is a criminal offence and therefore public displays of affection are best avoided. That said Morocco has been a favourite destination for gay travellers since the 1960's. The warm and welcoming people are fairly liberal in their outlook and tolerant of what happens behind closed doors. Our Moroccan country guides are aware and supportive of the ethos of Pride Expeditions and are ready to welcome you and show you the delights of the Atlas mountains regardless of your sexuality, gender or identity.
