8-Day Hiking The Red Mountains of Tassaout : Central Atlas


The heart of the Central Atlas, at the foot of rounded and majestic peaks, jealously hides high plateaus and numerous villages of astonishing beauty. This itinerary, nestled between the austere heights of Jebel Andghomer, the Tessaout river, and the beautiful villages of Timlouline, Imchkioun, and Tizloutine with their red and ochre colors, is one of our most unique summer hikes. The Tessaout river and its region were undoubtedly the most “sung” in the oral tradition of these remote mountains. This hike is an immersion into the heart of ancient times and the way of life in the Berber valleys.
