High Atlas Trek – part 6 Aremd to Imlil to Marrakesh

The final morning on trek we had a short walk down the valley to the village of Imlil at the road end where our mules and muleteers left us. From there we were transferred back to Marrakesh by minibus.

Imlil is the centre of mountain tourism in Morocco due to its unique position. From here 90% of visitors head up to Toubkal. Imlil is the end of the tarmac road, and a natural place to hire mountain guides and mules for the onward trek.
