We start our day trip in Marrakech. We'll pick you up from your hotel or from the airport.

We start this beautiful day trip at 9:00 am and first drive towards Lake Takerkoust south of the village of Lalla Takerkoust.

Then we head towards the village of Asni where Sir Richard Branson has his beautiful hotel. After seeing the falls it is possible to enjoy lunch there.

In Imlil we are about two hours after we left Marrakech.

Time to stretch your legs and remove the camera from the bag, because you really have to take a few nice pictures of the falls.

The beautiful surroundings are also worth a photo.

After having climbed and photographed enough, it is time for lunch.

You can of course take this in Imlil or else in hotel Tamadot (please make a reservation).

Details about Imlil and Asni

 

Summary

 

 

 

 

English

 

Imlil is a small village in the high Atlas Mountains of Morocco at an altitude of 1800 meters. It is close to the Toubkal mountain, the highest peak in North Africa (over 4000 meters).

Imlil is a good base for climbing Toubkal, since it is at the end of the asphalted road and is a natural place to hire mountain guides and mules for the further trek. Imlil is the center of mountain tourism in Morocco because of its unique position. Imlil is connected to Asni via a draw path.

Open-back trucks offer a bus service between these three villages several times a week.

Before the arrival of mountain tourism, the Imlil area was known for its production of walnuts, apples and cherries. Although these are still important for the local economy, they are overshadowed by tourism. Both mountain tourists and Moroccans come to Imlil in search of cool lighting.

The film "Seven years in Tibet" was partly filmed in the village.

On 17 August 1995, after an enormous rain shower, the village of Imlil was catastrophically flooded in just 2.5 hours and the surrounding valleys washed away. Official figures report that around 150 people, including 20-60 tourists, were killed. Forty vehicles parked near the river were washed away. The villagers suffered significant losses in food supplies and agricultural land, as well as an exhausted tourist industry during the coming months. However, the Moroccan government was quick to free up access to the village via the blocked mountain road in four days. By 2000, the village was still not normal, with large areas of previously cultivated land still buried in floods. Many of their walnut trees were also washed away in the flood.

Asni is a small village at the foot of the mountain towards Imlil and about half an hour's drive from Imlil.

At Asni you will find Sir Richard Branson's famous Tamadot hotel.

 

German

Imlil ist ein kleines Dorf im hohen Atlasgebirge von Marokko auf einer Höhe von 1800 Metern. Es liegt in der Nähe des Berges Toubkal, dem höchsten Gipfel Nordafrikas (über 4000 m).

Imlil ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um Toubkal zu besteigen, da es am Ende der asphaltierten Straße liegt und ein natürlicher Ort ist, um Bergführer und Maultiere für die weitere Wanderung zu mieten. Imlil ist aufgrund seiner einzigartigen Lage das Zentrum des Bergtourismus in Marokko. Imlil ist über einen Zeichenpfad mit Asni verbunden.

Open-Back-Trucks bieten mehrmals pro Woche eine Busverbindung zwischen diesen drei Dörfern an.

Vor der Ankunft des Bergtourismus war die Gegend von Imlil für die Produktion von Walnüssen, Äpfeln und Kirschen bekannt. Obwohl diese für die lokale Wirtschaft immer noch wichtig sind, werden sie vom Tourismus überschattet. Sowohl Bergtouristen als auch Marokkaner kommen auf der Suche nach kühlem Licht nach Imlil.

Der Film "Sieben Jahre in Tibet" wurde teilweise im Dorf gedreht.

Am 17. August 1995 wurde das Dorf Imlil nach einem enormen Regenschauer in nur 2,5 Stunden überflutet und die umliegenden Täler weggespült. Offizielle Zahlen berichten, dass rund 150 Menschen, darunter 20-60 Touristen, getötet wurden. 40 Fahrzeuge, die in der Nähe des Flusses geparkt waren, wurden weggespült. Die Dorfbewohner erlitten in den kommenden Monaten erhebliche Verluste bei der Nahrungsmittelversorgung und der landwirtschaftlichen Nutzfläche sowie eine erschöpfte Tourismusindustrie. Die marokkanische Regierung konnte jedoch innerhalb von vier Tagen den Zugang zum Dorf über die gesperrte Bergstraße zügig freigeben. Bis zum Jahr 2000 war das Dorf noch nicht normal, und große Teile des zuvor bebauten Landes waren immer noch in Überschwemmungen begraben. Viele ihrer Walnussbäume wurden von der Flut mitgerissen.

Asni ist ein kleines Dorf am Fuße des Berges in Richtung Imlil und etwa eine halbe Autostunde von Imlil entfernt.

In Asni finden Sie das berühmte Tamadot Hotel von Sir Richard Branson.

 

Nederlands

Imlil is een klein dorp in het hoge Atlasgebergte van Marokko op een hoogte van1800 meter. Het ligt dicht bij de berg Toubkal, de hoogste piek in Noord-Afrika (ruim 4000 meter). 

Imlil is een goede uitvalsbasis om Toubkal te beklimmen, omdat het aan het einde van de geasfalteerde weg ligt en is een natuurlijke plek om berggidsen en muilezels in te huren voor de verdere trektocht. Imlil is het centrum van bergtoerisme in Marokko vanwege zijn unieke positie. Imlil is verbonden met Asni via een trekpad. 

Open-back trucks bieden meerdere keren per week een busdienst tussen deze drie dorpen aan.

Vóór de komst van het bergtoerisme stond het Imlil-gebied bekend om zijn productie van walnoten, appels en kersen. Hoewel deze nog steeds belangrijk zijn voor de lokale economie, zijn ze overschaduwd door het toerisme. Zowel bergtoeristen als Marokkanen komen naar Imlil op zoek naar een koele verlichting.

De film 'Zeven jaar in Tibet' werd gedeeltelijk in het dorp gefilmd.

Op 17 augustus 1995 werd na een enorme regenbui in slechts 2,5 uur het dorp Imlil catastrofaal onder water gezet en spoelde de omliggende valleien weg. Officiële cijfers melden dat zo'n 150 mensen, waaronder 20-60 toeristen, werden gedood. Veertig voertuigen geparkeerd in de buurt van de rivier werden weggespoeld. De dorpsbewoners leden aanzienlijke verliezen aan voedselvoorraden en landbouwgronden, evenals een uitgeputte toeristenindustrie gedurende de komende maanden. De Marokkaanse regering was er echter snel bij om de toegang tot het dorp via de geblokkeerde bergweg in vier dagen vrij te maken. Tegen 2000 was het dorp nog steeds niet normaal, met grote gebieden van eerder gecultiveerd land nog begraven onder vloedafval. Veel van hun walnootbomen werden ook weggespoeld in de vloed.

Asni is een klein dorp aan de voet van de berg richting Imlil en ongeveer een half uur rijden van Imlil. 

Bij Asni bevindt zich het beroemde hotel Tamadot van Sir Richard Branson.
