Half Day Walks

Walks are with a mountain guide and take 3 – 4 hours. As the Kasbah is in the foot-hills of the mountains, there is the possibility to choose walks where the amount of climbing is moderate rather than strenuous. We can also adjust walks to suit different abilities.

1- Berber Villages & Mountains

We head east to Agadir village to admire the marvellous views north to the Haouz Plain and south to the mountains (including Mount Toubkal, 4,167m). The circuit continues south along a delightful small valley and into a lightly forested part of the Toubkal National Park. We proceed to Outghal vallage to see the houses constructed from baked earth and return through olive groves and mountain fields.

2- Azrou Village & Local Market Gardens

We head north to the Ighigheyene river valley and pass alongside market gardens and orchards until will reach Douar Azrou, a very attractive village perched on an outcrop of rock. We climb the hill to admire the views of the mountains to the south and continue through further Berber villages.

3- Mount Khelout (Very energetic)

We descend from the Kasbah (altitude 1,000m) and cross the Sidi Fares valley. We pass below the Forest Guard’s house and gradually climb until we reach the forest (1,200m). We then follow a very steep path that takes us to the summit of Khelout (1,545m). Having admired the views of Mount Toubkal, Asni and the Imlil valley, we descend by a path via Outghal.
