Ourika valley sightseeing

Description
After breakfast, meeting with your guide on the hotel at 07:00 to explains ... how the day’s steps , leaving our hotel at 07:30 o’clock, this day will be devoted for nutures tours of the Ourika Valley , for an exciting 2½ hour drive south through to one of Morocco's longest and most beautiful, refreshing valleys - the Ourika Valley - teeming with lush vegetation, palmeraies, steep-sides gorges, ancient terraced irrigated fields and Berber hamlets. Some 33km from Marrakech, this valley really starts at a small Berber village of Dar Caïd Ouriki, with its kasbah and mosque. We reach the Berber village of Tiguemi n'Oumzilet and on through hills of ever-changing colours - from red to grey to blue - in the midst of olive groves up to a visit of the ochre-red village of Akhlij, thence on to the Berber hamlet of Asouqane and a stop at Aghbalou, set amongst terraced fields seeming to hang from the slopes, and its nearby Cascade. From here we carry on almost to the end of the remarkable valley until we reach the riverside Berber hamlet of Setti Fadma, named for its nearby waterfalls and ancient walnut trees. Here we leave our vehicle to start our 5-6 hour hike circle hike towards the west across the river setting out from Agadir n'Aït Boulmane (1509m) and then towards the north up along a narrow winding path towards the Berber hamlet of Chiqr (1900m), on through the col of the Tizi n'Ougadil n'Boulmane (2200m) with the Jbel Oukaïmeden range before us. From here we circle down to Imi n'Taddert and on up through the valley to the Berber village of Tourichtt where we shall stop for our picnic before the waterfall; an opportunity, perhaps to get refreshed. Our afternoon 2-hour hike is made by setting out down via small waterfalls to the Berber hamlet of Amlougghi, to arrive at the village of Aït Barqa where we shall cross the river to rejoin our vehicle at Hadd n'Azegaour for our return to Marrakech, where we should arrive at around 7.30 in the evening.
